He is still a project, 3 or 4 years away from being ready for the NHL.
He just has a lot more to work on than McIlrath, who always had good speed. Noreau started out very slow when he was first drafted. Sure, the scouting reports said he was a good skater for his size, but that's because your average fifth round pick who's 6-5 225 pounds is going to be slower than a dead person. In the Traverse-2011 tournament, he wasn't fast enough to play even against ECHLers.
He showed promise and he kept improving his skating and passing, but he's still not as good as McIlrath. If he makes the Whale next year even as a third pair guy, I will be very happy.
