    Benoit Pouliot - 67 games 29 goals 36 assists 65 points 102 PIM Sudbury OHL

    Marc Antoine Pouliot - 70 games 45 goals 69 assists 114 points 83 PIM Rimouski QMJHL

    Benoit has simmilaraties as 4th overall underachieving Andrew Ladd. MA as a better supporting cast

    Id have to say Benoit is better. He seems to have more raw talent than Marc-Antoine. This is coming from a huge fan of Marc-Antoine, Benoit just looks alot smoother in every aspect. Though Marc has a really nice shot Ive come to notice. Both should end up solid prospects.

    MA Pouliot is also older...if you compare pre-draft years so this year for benoit and 2002-03 for MA then its 65 points in 67 games for benoit and 73 points in 65 games for MA (of course that doesn't factor in differences in leagues)...

    pre-draft status i'd give a slight edge to benoit, but not much

    I'd say Benoit Pouliot, even if I don't like him very much.

    What similarities? The fact that they both played one year in the CHL before their draft season? So Did Patrice Bergeron.

    First good argument. I'm surprised it wasn't from Vlad The Impaler's mouth... I thought he knew everything.

    They're not the same kind of player, but both only had one good year and that's the 'comparision' that was made.

    Pouliot is the better Prospect ;)

    But seriously, I've never seen Benoit play, Ive seen MA a couple times and he has good vision and a good shot. Needs to work on skating a little more.

    I don't like seeing people using numbers here...........because first of all, Sudbury isn't an offensive team look at this, stats wise there's a huge gap between Pouliot, Chaumont, Stortini, he isn't playing with good linemates either.Marc Antoine is playing with Crosby, really nuff' said.Pouliot had 2 less points then the overager Martynowki...


    Rafal Martynowski............................. 68 31 36 67 65
    Benoit Pouliot................................ 67 29 36 65 102
    Bobby Chaumont................................ 68 31 17 48 43
    Zach Stortini................................. 58 13 27 40 186

    Let's forget the stats a litte bit... both are different players.Benoit is more dynamic, he's a tremendous skater, has good all around skills.Marc is a complete player, I like his game, his shot is insane....I'd take Benoit Pouliot, no doubt.Can you imaginate Benoit numbers if he'd have played with Crosby???? Benoit has tremendous upside, I atleast know he has more upside then Ladd.:D

    Who were Benoit's linemates this past season. I think he's the better prospect also.

    First off, Vlad only knows everything becauses he steals it from me!

    Sure, that was the comparison that was made. But it doesn't stop it from being a horrible one.

    I have never seen MAP play. Is/has there ever been any discussion on whether this guy is overhyped due to playing with Sid or does he stand well on his own?
    Thx

    There really wasn't much debate... even before Crosby arrived, Pouliot was performing very, very well. He essentially carried Rimouski on his back after the trade that netted them the 1st overall pick in the Q draft. Last year, the volume from the Crosby-is-zooming-MAP camp racheted up a notch, but it was put down quite solidly this year after MAP produced well from the second line before jumping to the #1 centre spot during the WJC. It was only during the last 25 (?) games of the regular season that MAP actually was on the first line, and his totals of course went up. However, they don't make up a significant enough portion of his production to say that he needed Sidney to score.

    I don't know, but I wouldn't mind the Oilers having both Pouliot's!!!
