Okay, I looked up his stats just now:
geez it looks like an Emerson Etem stat line.
So fair Bouch is a far cry below Nail 7-5-11-16
Whoa Sarnia also has Brett Richie and Rensfeldt,
When does Galchenyuk get healthy?
Galchenyuk is back late November or December. His return is still up in the air.
Living in Sarnia, I have watched Boucher play over the last month and he's got a tremendous shot - one of the best in the league. However, Boucher needs to develop the other areas of his game in order to justify a higher draft position. He was one of my favourite players entering the 2011 draft and was surprised to see a team not take him higher but I can certainly see why people dubbed him as a "project pick".
His shot is his greatest skill but he's not very good at handling the puck or beating defenders with either speed or strength. To date, I have seen several instances where he's caused turnovers because of his average puck skills. Hopefully Boucher will improve in that area because if he does NJ grabbed a hell of a prospect.
