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.

You have a point, but....

What does that say about the Habs drafting Leblanc in the 1st round, considering that he is 2 years older than Archambault (who played on a weak team) and barely outscored him (~14 less games)?

Just askin'.
