Does Danault have enough offensive power to make me more nervous though? I know it's a big addition but I think the price was way too high for someone with his stats.. Obviously it's still good, and his other game is great, but doesn't fill the other needs they had.... Every team has holes, that can't be changed, but Moncton could use another D as Melindy hasn't been himself this year and goaltending is bigger problem too. Dubeau is too inconsistent.... Do you feel 100% with him going all the way?
How bout the supposed "clique" in the dressing room? No chemistry, 4 players who have formed their own group... Could be nothing, but it's been brought up before...
What does mentioning Deruelle do to help Moncton's depth? He had 4 goals and was clearly not good enough to be a regular Q player or he would be with you or on another team... the best team on paper doesn't always win, but those players you mention are not on the level of Halifax or BLB who have the best bottom 6 players in the league.
Instead of scared , I should have worded it what team would they rather play. If you're Hali, Quebec, BLB or BC , would you rather face Moncton or Bathurst in a playoff round.
Danault is a world class player and one of the best in the league. He's a huge addition and will have an immediate impact on the team. Other than helping out offensively , he'll help the tea, defensively since he's arguably the best two-way forward in the league. As I mentioned above I don't feel good about going into the playoffs with an inconsistent goalie like Dubeau but he does have 26 game left to work on that. He is not a bad goaltender and shows spectacular flashes when the pressures on. at times. The biggest question into the Wildcats' playoff success does fall on his shoulders imo. At times this season he has outplayed the best of them. He's either really on or really off.
Mentioning Deruelle has to do with the fact that chsb says Moncton lacks depth up front. When a team waives a player that was on pace for 40 points before his injury a couple of weeks ago shows we have the depth. We have a 4th line of Johnston , Garland , Johnson/Batt. Would you say Moncton lacks depth ?
Veilleux - Saulnier - Saulnier
Jaskin - Danault - Barbashev
Tremaine - Penny - Lalonde
Johnston - Johnson - Garland
Do you think BLB, BC , Rouyn would rather play Moncton or Bathurst ? Moncton beat BLB 2/3 , BC 2/2 and Rouyn 2/3...
