Daniel Sprong to me is how some teams viewed Pepin last year. Top 5 talent? Yes. Top 5 attitude? Not so sure. It's just my opinion, I wouldn't touch him in this years draft with some of these other guys on the board. I know most would disagree but they can make their own list

A lot of people will disagree on Deschenes as well because that's the in style thing to do these days but I still see him going first round and being worth the pick, if he lands on a team with the right coaching. There seem to be a lot of Atlantic prospects that go from large hype to negative hype and still turn out to be solid Q players (Cormier, Duffy, Anthony, Lyle, etc.) He'll do well in the Q, he probably won't be the NHL star he was once projected to be but he's still going to be a solid Q player.
Nice to see some people here promoting there local talent , lets hope it works out for them.
