As for Marchand he already proved he can deliver EVERYWHERE HE PLAYED.
See his time in Halifax, Marchand was/is clutch often in his career, to say he delivered "EVERYWHERE" isn`t true I`m afraid, hands down, the most entitled, selfish player I`ve had to digest in my 7 years as a Mooseheads season tix holder, he`s matured, but still needs to do more of it IMO.

Please feel free where I stated without question Knight is the 'saviour', pretty sure I used the word "could"

Dom is a regular/respected and well informed poster here whom has watched Knight play more than, I suspect most here, and while I often use first hand sources here to keep me informed, both they, and I are quick to point out, that NO prospect is a guarantee but you feel free to pinpoint me as someone who strictly piggybacks on the opinion of others.

I have read accounts from more than a few GM`s when speaking about Knight referring him to as a kid who any NHL team would welcome into their organization as a guy who busts his arse each shift, is coachable, has some offensive touch, and will never have coaches/gm`s/fans feel cheated with his play, how that translates once his pro career begins who knows, but to discount his potential also isn`t wise.

Again, IF Knight has a solid year, whether that`s in Providence or not, it opens the doors of options for Chia as any prospects play does when they convince Mngt/Coaches they are ready

Again, feel free to find the quote where I intimated he was a saviour, I know you included various 'emotions' but not sure your statement is true that fans here believe a prospect in the system is a saviour.............although I do think Spoons has a 'chance' to be one heck of a PP guy

By the posts I have read for some time now re: Knight, the overwhelming majority here have expressed a ton of excitement with the prospect of watching Knight/Spooner/Koko/Dougie, haven`t read one fan proclaim ANY of them to be saviours
