Bournival, to be, is not the player who would fit on a team's top-6, but is not your typical bottom-6er neither.
We have many tweeners in our prospects pool. It's time to bring diversity to the group filled by guys like Leblanc, Bournival, Dumont, Holland and everyone.
We have some great depth and diversity in our prospects on D. We lack some up front.
We don't, in my opinion, have the high-end forward prospects that make the tweeners expendable. Not sure if we're prepared to move from a top-9, collective-scoring-type model now or in the future. That's where these players are valued. Not high-end, specialized talents (physically, offensively, defensively etc.). Just solid, unspectacular hockey players you can put on 2nd or 3rd lines. However, I'm definitely for diversifying our prospects. I'd add Kristo to the Leblanc, Bournival, Holland mix despite his great stick handling ability and knack for offence.
Caron, Klingberg, and Chiasson are prospects I'd diversify our pool with. Something different. If not, we've got the draft coming up.
