If you guys saw Archambault's game last night, you'll understand why he went through a mini scoring slump. The kid has been working on his defensive game and last night shows that he's coming around. Archie is playing in all three zones of the ice.

On numerous occasions he was the first forward for the Volts into the offensive zone and the first forward back in the defensive zone. He skates miles.

I think the Habs management has been trying to develop his two way skills. I like the improvement I've seen from this kid. Although his skating is fast, he is not quick - if you know what I mean. That's probably because his decision making is still a little slow. He would have to improve on that. He needs to be quicker on the ice. And he needs to put on more muscle if he wants to make the NHL.

But he has two-three more years to develop and i see a lot of improvement from last year when he was at camp.
