Now all I have to do is convince you guys that he's top 5 D in Canada
since people continue to exclude him from the WJC team when imo he's the 3rd best D-man right now behind Hamilton and Murray.
What? It was common knowledge among Q observers that Ouellet was the best D coming into this season...
Ouellet has all the tools but his decision making seems suspect from time to time. I think he will need time in the AHL.
He is the kind of D that can play 27-28 minutes a night (well, at the junior level) and will give you great hockey in all three zones, but will make a couple of mistakes/turnovers every game. I guess you just gotta live with it.
