Blainville-Boisbriand will be an alright team this year, but don't look like a contender. Marcoux may keep them in a lot of games, but the team won't be good enough. Their top line is more of a second line, and Roy will be depended on, as will Clapperton for the majority of the scoring. If Marti returns, him and Picard will form what isn't a bad defensive unit, but definitely not a good one either. It'll most likely be a down year for the Armada.
(if Marti is gone) Euro pick prediction = Defenseman
Don't think the Armada will have that rough of a season honestly. Marcoux in top shape is basically the best goalie in the league. Sure, size is an issue and defense is a question mark, but there arnt a whole lot of teams right now that are really stacked in the Q. BLB will be able to compete night in and night out.
Clappy and Roy are so underrated. They are legit 1st liners not sure why you would call them 2nd liners. Sanche had a tremendous rookie year. Only thing you can say about them is they are small but in the Q reg season it's not that big of a deal. I believe Tesink will be back if not maybe a free agent can come in (like Hinds last season). No reason why Hodhod, Jevpalovs, Martel wouldn't be improved. That's a solid corps of forwards... maybe the fastest in the league.
On defense there is so many names that there is bound to be a solid top-4 that emerges from this. Picard, Leduc are solid vets. Bahl should be able to establis himself as a top-2 D. The euro pick will be important and I wouldnt be opposed to Marti coming back. As a 20-yrs old he could be similar to Abeltshauser from Halifax. That would make a solid top-4 and believe me guys like Beaudoin and Bedard played really well this past season. They will be hungry for more at training camp. Hoyles is a solid player as well, good bottom pairing guy and will be entering his 3rd season already with the team.
With Bouchard and Houle there's no way this team finishes this far down... they won the division with a lot less two years ago.
