    Alex Bourret with 4g and 5a leads the Q in playoff scoring followed by Guillaume
    Latendresse with 4g and 4a.Bourret and Leweston swept Shawinigan and
    Drummondville has tied Monctton.I'm quite impressed with Latendresse scoring
    3 points last night to beat Moncton 3-1 to tie the series.Apparently he's been good
    so far and difficult to contain.These guys aren't ranked in any scouting services
    top ten.Are they not getting enough respect.Personally I can't see too many
    managers passing on Latendresse despite his history with injuries.
    As for Bourret I think alot of people think he's only producing because he plays
    with Picard.Well,right now Picard has 2g and 0a and from the boxscores it looks
    like Bourret is playing with other forwards at least part of the time.

    Latendresse is awesome in NHL:EHM - that's about all I know of him - and he's got one of those evil quebecois names that fits so good on a hockey player.

    So given that evidence I'd say he's a lock for a top five pick. ;)

    Ouuuuh evil! lol

    I've seen one of his goal yesterday on highlites from RDS and the guy doesn't seem to be too slow for a big kid, I'd be interested in him were I a GM.

    If I had the #3 pick I would think long and hard about getting Latendresse, his upside is huge. It's just his consistency that worries me, but since the second half of the year, he's really turned it up a notch.

    WTF? You'd take him over Brule or Johnson?

    Well , I'd consider him early but not as early as 3rd overall.

    I think that's got a little to do with his injury.

    The teams that will get both of those guys will be very happy. They looks like realy good players. Latendresse looks like a futur power forward and Bourret like scoring agitator that will always play hard.

    Bourret and Latendresse will definitely rise IMO. Along with Anze Kopitar I could see those 3 going very high to a team who thinks they have the highest upside.

    Nothing against him, but I could see Brule falling because of lack of size.

    I agree with you here. His size will hurt him. He is very thin and I don't think he will able to play physical in the NHL. That's why I think he will not be taken 2nd overall and maybe not even 3rd.

    Remember this: Latendresse will be the 2nd best player taken in the 2005 draft....no, i'm not kidding.

    I haven't got to see the Q league playoffs, but Brule has definitely been phenominal versus one of the best teams in the CHL in Kelowna. He has been a one man wrecking machine and he would make MANY GM's look foolish for skipping past him do to size. Hitting, making plays, he is head and shoulders above anyone on the ice in that series.

    ALEX BOURRET,he is incredible,l see all the series,:
    game 1: 1 goal,1 ass 6 pim first stars

    game 2: 1 goal,1 ass 2 pim second stars

    game 3: 2 goal,3 ass 4 pim first stars

    game 4: 0 goal,0 ass 2 pim lewiston win O.T

    the coach Clement Jodouin (lew) separate Picard and Bourret for all firts rond and Picard has a bad series,for Picard this saison has a good saison but he has a low start,big error if has person tink Bourret profit play with Picard,i think Picard he is very lucky to play with Bourret.

    Latendresse with Bourret is two best hot players and the league now,is not a suprise for my.

    Well, he's outscoring Bobby Ryan and leading his team so far in the 1st round. Drummondville is a much weaker team than Owen Sound and Latendresse is having a better round right now than Ryan. It could make a difference if there is a draft this year.

    Latendresse always played his best under pressure. At the Air Canada cup in 2002 (yea the one where Crosby stole the show) at the u-17 in 2003 and now here. CSB better shoot him up at least 50 spots.
