That's good to hear - was he recognized as such by the league? All-defense team?

All I have to base my opinion of Sauve on is the 2 training camps he attended in Vancouver. The first one he looked like a complete trainwreck that obviously didn't belong and the 2nd one he looked much better, though nowhere near NHL ready.

Though I don't see Sauve as a blue-chip prospect it is encouraging to know at one point he was looked at as one of the top defensemen in the world at his position and age - I just hope it wasn't because he hit puberty before everybody else. I think we'll find out the answer next season.
