Max Lapierre is very much an 'AV kinda guy'. He competes hard, is physical, kills penalties and gets by on effort and determination. He's your prototypical Vigneault type bottom 6 forward and I'm not surprised the coach's input played a big role in his acquisition. Alain loves trying to turn guys with limited natural ability into more valuable players that can take on bigger, more important roles.

Lapierre right now at 25 years of age is exactly where a 25 year old, 9 point in 81 games Alex Burrows was...
