Let's not get crazy out here: Noreau is scoring at the same pace as Purinton at the same age. Their fighting ability is similar, though Noreau is a slightly better skater. I have him projected as our future #7 defenseman, and I think that would be a good outcome for a 5th rounder. If we can use him for 4-6 years as a tough defenseman who plays ~40 games a year as a slightly improved version of Purinton (in his prime), I will be happy.

This kid might be better off trying to learn to play forward to become an every day goon. It's hard to be a goon as a defenseman because there are only 6 of them.
