    I know where he is now, I just wonder for those who may have followed his career more closely, how did he end up in the LNAH despite having over a point per game in the ECHL and 6 points in 15 games while in the AHL in his 2nd season, was it attitude, those numbers are pretty solid

    As mentioned, he wasn't going to play with Crosby forever so it was just a matter of time.

    I saw him a lot of times on and off the ice when he played in Rimouski (I live there). Dude had a big head and not enough heart to make it to the big time.

    Pretty much this.

    Roussin is a perfect example of a player who had decent skills for the junior level, but whose overall stats were inflated to a ridiculous amount by playing with the best player in the CHL that year, and who would go on to become one of the best players in the NHL.

    Frederick Roy will probably become this year's Dany Roussin playing with Grigorenko.

    Same thing happened to Esposito when he played with Radulov at 16.

    I wonder who got more points that they totally didn't deserve over their junior careers, Dany Roussin as a result of Sidney Crosby, or Dylan Hunter as a result of his dad owning and coaching the team and him getting to play with Corey Perry, Rob Schremp, Dave Bolland, etc. Both Roussin and Hunter were destined to be ECHL All-Stars.

    Roussin was actually a very good junior player, with or without Crosby - he just didn't have the footspeed or strength to be an NHLer. He scored at a 2 point per game clip when Sid was at the WJCs. He's still better than danny stewart. Why was that dude even drafted?
