Well Lapointe is an ex-player in the NHL, so you might figure he knows a thing or two about making it to the NHL. And now, you will tell me: But he has no experience in developing players. And I will answer to you that his role is not about coaching the players into reaching their potential, it's to evaluate and give them a report on what they have to work on to get to the next level.
