No love for Tousignant?

Was reading Kevin's recent "Top 20 Q prospects" article, and noticed that Mathieu Tousignant was not mentioned, not even in the "other notables" list.

I know he was overlooked by the NHL last summer, and I know he's an abrasive little cuss, but from out here in Ontario he looks like a player. Any guesses as to why he doesn't get any respect?

All insights appreciated.

Because those 20 are just better! These players won't come back in the Q at 20 like Tousignant...

It was really more of a general question regarding Tousignant's potential, rather than a criticism of the list. An overage junior season does not a bad player make - so what is it about Tousignant's game that has left the NHL fraternity - and this board - so unimpressed with him? His offensive production is as good or better than a number of forwards on that list, both last season and this season, and he brings a feisty dimension that still appears to be in demand in hockey circles. So, what is it?

Tousignant is a poor skater, he is fat , not very serious about hockey.
He's okay with the puck, nice grit and skills .. but it's not enough for the next level imo

speaking of tousignant he got his ass kick by MacMillan yesterday (you can watch this fight on the Q website archive game around 1:19 in video)

MacMillan and tousignant really hate each other going back from their day when both play in the atlantic division

Tousignant lack size, and doesn't have the attitude for the next level, from what I've seen up to now.

I'm glad of this because he'll be dominant for us next year!

*he might get a tryout after next year if he have a great season, ala desharnais.
