He played in the quebec league for god's sake and didn't do much. You think he'll be any better in hanilton? doubt it never mind the nhl. He'll get a sniff only because the habs need him to make it. Reminds me of esposito in a way. It was a political pick from day one at the draft. That's a big problem in montreal.
He played about the whole season with a shoulder injured, I think its not really reasonable to evaluate him properly based on the last season..

A guy like Patrice Bergeron doesnt excel in anything but he does everything right on the ice.. Thats what Im expecting from Louis, a solid 2 way center who does alot of little things very well and a guy who can score clutch goals.. Im not saying he will become as good as Bergeron but thats the kind of player he can become IMO.
