Archambault wasnt even a PPG player in the Q. Not very impressive.

That's the reason I voted Macmillan. Archambault has been nothing short of disappointing so far after joining the Q, he's undersized and hasn't met expectations.

If I started to value players by where they were picked David Fischer would be a top 4 NHL dman now

Archambault has a massive ladder to climb before he cracks my "I believe he can be an NHLer" list. I ultimately think he'll pull a ****fit and will be sergei kostitsyn 2.0

That is pretty drastic considering Archambault has better skills than Mac

How can you say Archambault has better skills than Mac?

Where is your measuring stick? How do you base this? Off of stats? Have you watched them both?

Archambault has no heart, he has skill, but does not use it. He'll amount to nothing, I'd be surprised if he ever gets an NHL contract. Maybe, if he's lucky, a minor league contract.

i've watched both yes, Wise guy.

Copy paste is so 2010

My question was how is he saying 1 is better than the other, unless he watched, and what was his criteria for his statement.

Like I said, I take MacMillan, but some people in this thread will eat crow next year when Archambault puts up a PPG with the Volts, expecially if he plays with Couturier.

There's a huge difference between a 1st overall vs a late 1st round pick. There's less risk when you pick 1st overall, the player should be good. Anyway, I understand your point for the QMJHL entry draft because at this point players are still relatively young.

Its early in his career and he didnt progress has expected so I can understand the bad press. At the same time, I like the gamble. It will be a huge year for him, I hope he prove everyone that it was only a bad fit for him last year. He still have alot of skills.

Getting a Sergei K. in the forth round wouldnt be that bad.

See now thats an answer I can agree with. I still vote MM tho

But I agree he could turn out well, I just have too many doubts with him, and less doubts with MM.
