Well even if he was a Habs prospect, I've never seen Deveaux play and never even remember following him so it's tough to say but with what I've seen him in the NHL, I have to say that it could be a fair comparison minus the skating. Conboy is a better skater. What remains to be seen now as far as Conboy is concerned is his realy ability to be an enforcer with men in front of him. The guy seemed to be a force in lower levels, now he'll find out that he won't be as dominant as he once was. We'll see how determined he is and how focus he is now.
