    How close was Lewiston's Alexandre Picard to making Team Canada? He sounds like someone Sutter would of loved to have but obviously passed on him. Do you guys think he did because he hasn't had enough exposure to him since he coaches in the West and probably doesn't get to see the QMJHL much?

    Does Cape Breton's Alexandre Picard have a good chance to make it as a backup on Team Canada?

    Thanks

    I don't think that the d-man will make it because there is to much talent at the blue line for Canada. For the Lewiston one, he has enough talent to make the team but we all know what's happend. Coach Sutter want the best team and want guys who are able to play together ( One things he probably don't know is that Dany Roussin, M-A Pouliot, Steve Bernier, Alex Picard (Lewiston) played all their minor hockey (from atom to midget) in the same team (what a good chemistry)

    I belive Lewistons Picard should have been atleast invited to the camp, but hey what do i know. As for the other Picard, (who plays for Halifax by the way) I think there is way to much talent on the Team Canada defence for him to make but he is quite a good defenceman, both offensively and Defensivley. I belive he is one of the most underrated players in the Q or even the CHL.

    no chance in hell that (D) Picard makes the team. As for (F) Picard, he should have been there, no doubt about it. Bourret, Brulé (whl), Pouliot and Bernier should have gotten an invitation too.

    I thought the Lewiston's one was sure to make it but looking back wat cost him was this year he wanted to fight more instead of making the plays and scoring.

    I though Picard (F) was hurt or just coming off an injury?? If so, that could have hampered him being considered for the camp.

    the night before the training camp roster was released, he was with Lewiston and registered 3 assists. Sounds like he was alright.

    Thanks guys

    I just wasn't sure if (D) Picard was good enough to make it as the 7th defensemen if Sutter decides to go that route.

    I'm still believing that Picard(Lewiston) should have been invited at the camp. Suter like player who work hard. Picard is a guy who work hard with talent.

    They didnt play together in Midget :) Alex Picard played Bantam AA and didnt make the Midget AAA Ste-Foy team as a 15 year old. Late bloomer for sure.

    It's the D Picard who was playing with them. BTW he has no chance to make the team. That 's why it's this one they invited ;)

    And that's why I'm pissed off. Also, Stephen Dixon has no place on this team imo. I would take Picard, Bourret, Bernier and Pouliot before him.

    That was not the d-man, that was lewiston Picard he is from les saules (in quebec city) But when he was younger nobody thought he would be a 1st round pick.

    You sure?

    Alex Picard (D) played in Gatineau, not Quebec city.
