Daniel Audette
 
What's been happening to #1 overall pick this past year? This is his stat line;

GP: 15 G: 2 A: 3 PTS: 5 +/- -21 PIM 26

Okay, I understand the 5 points thing (growing pains, 16 y/o with 20 y/o etc.) but the -21 with 26 PIM? Not exactly face-of-the-franchise material.

jfb392 11-04-2012 03:16 PM

Well, they're an expansion team.
They have a -45 goal differential and their captain is a -24..

As for his PIMs, he's always been known to have a temper.

IHaveNoCreativity 11-04-2012 03:49 PM

His PIM ain't that high... He's on a garbage team.

He hasn't played one single game 100% healthy. Ankle injury is what Charbonneau has stated.

Didn't know that. When is he expected to be 100%?

Is this a joke? Who cares about +/- ... Here's on sherbrooke...

Yes, I know it doesn't really matter. But Sportsnet put him right up there with McDavid. He's not as good as McDavid right?

He was terrible vs Gatineau the other day, I swear it looked like he was aiming for Kielly on that turnover to him (which lead to Kielly's goal). Didn't know he wasn't 100% though.

Where did you see that? No, he's not even close.

Their names shouldn't even be mentioned in the same phrase..

It was in a Neil Hodge article for the Times and Transcipt. Charbonneau said that they were giving him the week off(Moncton home game) to rest his ankle. He said it was an injury from training camp and that he hasn't been 100% in a single game up to that point(game #12 i believe). They had hoped he'd be 100% following the week of rest he had, but I havn't heard anything since then. That was basically the organization's excuse for his dissapointing play , at least for the first 10-12 games. To be honest, I found he was overrated to a certain extent from day 1. He's a good player and has potential but he can't be compared to previous #1 overall QMJHL picks.

IHaveNoCreativity 11-04-2012 10:24 PM

He was the first pick in a weak draft...

I didn't think he was as good as McDavid. In some preview for the 2015 NHL draft on Sportsnet or TSN , they said it was between those 2 and some guy from the W named Bazel or Bazal or something.

McDavid is a 97' born and Audette is a 96'. Audette is draft eligible in the 2014 NHL Draft , McDavid 2015 NHL Draft.

Audette is a 2014 prospect, whereas McDavid and the kid they mentioned, Mathew Barzal, are 2015 prospects.
They were probably only mentioned together because they were the first overall picks in their respective leagues, but Barzal and McDavid are much better NHL prospects.

This, Audette isn't on the same planet as these 2.

From all the opinions i've been given on Audette (he did not play in Halifax) he does not seem like a "can't miss" prospect. Q scouts had mixed opinions on him and there were teams who did not have him #1 on their lists.

He seems like the type of player (smaller, skilled scorer) who will take a little longer to adjust to the QMJHL, just like Drouin didn't dominate like Mackinnon out of the gates, but has steadily gotten more comfortable using his skills.

He's no Drouin...

People have told me he was their first pick because his father was a partner in the team. There's talk that he wasn't the best player in the draft, so think it was Leveille.

And the fact that he's from Sherbrooke.

He will come around and be a solid player , just not a superstar like many previous # overall Q picks. I know for a fact that he wasn't the clearcut #1 in the QMJHL draft either , I know for a fact a few teams would have passed on him if they had the #1 pick. Probably a third of the teams would have chosen Alexis Pepin.

Never said they were on the same level, just a simliar type of player coming out of the draft.

Born there I believe, but resided in Sherbrooke or vica versa
