    Anybody caught some of his games? Seems to be doing well for BC.

    I caught a game of his last week here in Cape Breton. He was paired with Alexis Vanier. He was very steady. Played in all situations. He has good size, mobility and puck skills. What caught my eye was how poised he was for a 16 yr old. Very calm and cerebral with the puck. Baie Comeau has got a good one in him. Appears to have a bright future.

    If he continue to play this way, Meloche will probably very on demand at the trade deadline, if Baie-Comeau wants to land a top player.

    If so, I just hope for Baie-Comeau that it doesnt't turn out as bad it did when they trade David Savard, few years ago.

    If your are to trade Meloche to get the missing piece of the puzzle, trade him, but for the right player. Not a Matt Marquardt type.

    I think Baie-Comeau have enough choices and other prospects to keep Meloche in the system. Verpaelst and Chenevert will be gone next year. Vanier and Meloche will be the quarterbacks in defense for the team for the next few years.

    They probably have other prospects and choices, but if they want to get a top player, other team will definitevely ask for Meloche.

    You won't buy guys lile Anthony Mantha, Charles Hudon or Dillon Fournier with MAAA player.

    Baie-Comeau definitevely need a #1 defenseman.

    Last night vs. Sherbrooke he had 1G-1A, same stats tonight vs. Victoriaville (so far), playing very well for his age from what I see, already being used on the top PP pairing with Vanier....

    Doesn't look like it but already with the same offensive output as Roy with another goal and another assist tonight. Both at 3g and 8a, Meloche with one less gp.

    Meloche plays on a much better team though, but he's got nice numbers.

    Clearly, that said, for a steady stay-at-home guy, shows he must be doing something well

    watched him last night against SJ and today against CB. Really like his puck skills. Makes some very good plays offensively.

    Yup, really good player and exciting upside though he has to work on his footwork.

    yeah not always pretty ;)

    can get caught in tight space too from what I've seen, but there's more positive than anything for a 16 year old rookie
