    Plays for a terrible team, so I'd take his stats with a grain of salt, although they aren't that bad. He's been mentioned on this website a few times. Looked very impressive for Canada White today. I thought he was very dynamic offensively, but also showed a pretty good defensive game.

    Time for a bump, Mavrik has been very good on a horrible Shawinigan team. Leads all draftees in points and had two goals tonight. Very high end skill with nice shot and playmaking ability.

    Bourque was always a very nice playmaker who controls the pace of the play with a nice wrist shot. Plays a pretty solid two-way game too. Upside is nice on this kid. I might have underrated him a bit last year, only had him 6th on my QMJHL draft list.

    I think you probably had him rated accordingly... I had Lapierre, Villeneuve, Lawrence, Bordeleau, Guay and Poirier all rated ahead of him. Cormier was also nipping at his heels. It’s still too early to make a call and he looks absolutely fantastic but as of today, I still think I’d take those guys ahead of him with maybe the exception of Guay. You could have ranked him anywhere from 3-8 really and been in the correct ball park for him.

    Agreed. I still firmly believe Lapierre is the best player from that draft. I think Bourque might be better than Villeneuve and Guay which I had ahead of him. Anyway, solid player, a little bit surprised that his offense came that easily in his first year, even in Midget AAA it wasn't always easy on some nights.

    I like Villeneuve a lot but it’s so hard to compare a 16 year old D to a forward.. both look good. I’m pretty surprised the offence is coming this easy too, I thought he’d be in the 30-40 point range this season with 10-15 goals. Yet here he is scoring at a 27 goal and 54 point pace over 68. It’s very impressive.
