And this is the latest on Marc-Andre:

The key is the last line of the article, which makes it sound a lot like he's developing into a Jan Erixon clone.



Don't get me wrong, a Jan Erixon clone is a damn fine player - and based on his play in the QMJHL he appears to have more offensive upside than he displayed at the world juniors, BUT... I'm just a lot more intrigued by the 6'2" 206 center who is scoring at about the same clip and is described as hitting THROUGH people.

Honestly, given that it seems to me the 3 that eco's mentioned are pretty close it has more to do with what I think the system is lacking than anything else.
I have the feeling Dupont moves to LW in the NHL. He's already played LW on Calgary's top line with Ryan White. The impression I get about Dupont is that he's got some Adam Graves in him
