Noreau is no longer a "very, very marginal prospect" at all. He was when we drafted him, but his improvement makes him look like a much more intriguing prospect who can potentially be a bottom pairing guy.

Borque is older than both, more injury prone than both, and much weaker than both. The only thing he does better is skate. I fail to see how he's a better prospect at all if he can't even handle the rigors of the AHL.

I would agree with Noreau being very improved and a solid prospect. It was a poor choice of words on my part to use the words "marginal prospect", he's solid, though the odds are still against him making the NHL at this point. I hope he can keep improving because it would be nice to add a big, tough defenseman to our blue line.

I am not yet very hopeful about Ceresnak. Let's see what he does next year.
