Just of the top of my head Tower, Parsons, Messenger, Murphy-Hamer, Packman would all be guys that I would consider better than any forward in NB.
Defense is pretty close, but I think NB has a better group. Deschenes is probably the best 97 at any position in the maritimes. Then you have some more great D in Thompson, Paul, Vance, Cloutier, Robinson and so on.
Goaltending is something I don't have a great read on, but I think NS has a lead on that as well. Dawe , Mann-Dixon and Melanson are all great goalies in my opinion.
I am sure that others have a different view and would for certain see a lot more of the NS kids than I. Other posters have a better idea of a comparison of the provinces too.
I agree Welch is a very good Dman, I think they have a couple more that are good but Welch would be the best of the bunch.
Is there any players in PEI that measure up to any of the above mentioned players?I know Picco and Noel are at Prep School any word on there development this year?
