Both Berger and Lefebvre are bad skaters
, especially Berger who is downright awful. Neither one of these guys were even AHL calibre last season and are extremely unlikely to ever play in the NHL.
Walsh is a better prospect imo due to the fact that he is a better skater than either one of these players and he has the frame to put on alot more muscle. Neither one of Lefebvre or Berger ever put up a point per game in the CHL, even as overagers. Walsh had 10 pts in his 8 games last season playing at a higher level of hockey. No player on his team finished the season averaging a point per game. That may be a small sample but it certainly blows your statement of the other two players being better than him when they were in junior. Especially, when considering that Lefebvre never finished in the top 3 and Berger never finished in the top 5 in scoring for any of their respective junior teams.
We may have to agree to disagree on this one
Walsh isn't necessarily a great prospect but he certainly is more intriguing than the other two who I absolutely expected to be terrible last season.
I'm going to have to disagree with you there on Lefebvre. Skating is his strong suite and probably the main reason he was signed in the first place.
