unless we draft in the top 5 we won't get Huberdeau. Down the line he could be the best player from this draft. he can play a finess/gritty game. Has been compared to Lecavalier and Ryan Smyth. Won't back down from anyone. Need to bulk up, your looking at a 6"1 195lbs guy in 2-3 years. has played LW mostly since coming to the Q due to Seadogs depth down the middle. but he can play center as well. My guess he's going to be a winger at the nhl level.
Beaulieu ranking is very high, i like him but not #5 rk prospect in NA. i have him about in the 12-15 range. So we're picking 17th overall as of now so we might get a chance to grab him if he fall a little bit. He's big, solid skater, great offensive upside, good puck mover, can play a physical game if needed. Some question mark about his defensive game wich he has made stride this year and overall character.
Danault will be available when our pick come unless some dramatic event happen. Unless you believe he has upside to be a top 6 forward you can't pick him at 17th. Even with the big heart he has.. theirs others guys available who will have as much skill but in a bigger package like a McNeil/Biggs/Jensen/Boone ect. I feel he could be one of the top pick of the 2nd round and im affraid like Whitensnake that Boston could take him. IMO he's going to make a heck of a third liner and his coach in Victoriaville believe he will be a captain at the nhl level. I don't remember the last Q eligible draft player who was a captain in his draft year.
