Not a bad pick for the 4th round!

Those are pretty unimpressive numbers in the Q. Not saying I'm disappointed with the pick as Archambault seems to have some decent skills and he is a 4th rounder. You can find a whole load of guys who score like crazy in the QMJHL and never do anything in the AHL let alone NHL. Marc-Andre Thinel had 132 points in his draft year and 150 the year after that. Where is he now? What I'm curious about is whether anyone has every put up mediocre numbers in the QMJHL and went on to be a good scorer in the NHL. I can't think of anyone.
