Yes, son of Claude this guy doesn't have blood running through his veins, but bull shark testosterone. Insanely competitive player who brings a decent level of skill level as well. To me is a more goal-scoring version of Steve Downie, but brings the same qualities and talent level.

Don't get suckered in by the name, Lemieux is a 2nd to early 3rd pick in my book. You're right his compete is through the roof but skills are a little lacking he gets a lot of his points by being stronger than most junior players.

I would be disappointed if we took him in the first round but I'd be fine with him in the 2nd or 3rd round.

This draft needs to be focused on skill players. We have plenty of d prospects, goalie prospects and 3rd/4th line prospects. We are lacking in the skilled wingers prospects and this needs to be addressed with at least 3 or 4 picks this year. Obviously if a player falls in the first rd you take BPA but after that we kind of need the focus on the skill wingers.
