Agreed. If you look back at the prospects we've had the last few years that have dominated the junior leagues offensively, it's mind blowing. Gauthier-Leduc, Adam, Brennan, Schiestel, Crawford, Lagace, Legault, McNabb, Kassian, and Foligno all had outstanding seasons in their last years of junior. Scoring in junior is almost a given. I'd rather he develop the fundamentals and his defensive game more so. The Sportsnet announcers mentioned the high scoring nature of the QMJHL as not necessarily the best indicator of his progress and potential and it may have been the only thing I agreed with them about all night.
