I believe so. I watched a lot of camp and he was outstanding. There were rumblings that if his junior rights weren't owned by a team with good coaching (Brent Sutter in Red Deer) that he might have stayed up this season.

I am of the opinion that Sutter will move a defensemen this year or in the summer to make some room for Commodore/Phaneuf. To me Ference and Gauthier are the most obvious choices because I don't see us getting much for Montador. Ference has his size as a detractor. I think he'll be a good player but he's been mighty inconsistent this season. Gauthier is the guy I am least a fan of and I belive he'd bring more in a trade than the other two so that would be my choice to move.
