I watched the Drummondville games against Halifax and Quebec and also thought that Archambault looked good, especially against Halifax. The Quebec game was a bit tougher, seemed to be forcing plays and hogging the puck too much.

He definitely has impressive skills, especially his hands, and seems to be going more into traffic areas to make things happen. His vision is also impressive. He really needs to bulk up though - he doesn't have the speed to be able to make it on skill alone. Too easy for him to get muscled around at the next level. He still has a ways to go, hopefully he can keep it up throughout the year.

The two times i got to see him play was against two good teams, Armada and Remparts, and in each of the games, in my opinion, he clearly showed he was a player with a very unique set of skills.

We all knew he was talented, if only by the fact that he was picked first overall in the Lhjmq draft. However, last season, i thought he was lacking strength, stamina and overall hockey intelligence. He wasn't Bad, but not the player i thought/hoped he was going to be. And, to be honest, i didn't think he had it in him to become more.

But from the few games i had the chance to watch this season, i think he's finally blossoming. Most of his bad habits are gone. I thought he was one of the most combative player on the ice, always trying hard to get back the puck from the other team. The only (BIG) flaw in is game is that damn puck-hugging habit he has. If he corrects this rare flaw in his game (and many others that will become more obvious the more he plays in superior leagues) , i think we're in for yet another good prospect in our bank.

Honestly, I've rarely seen a player that creative in his movement at this level. In fact, bare the fact that he loses some pucks because he doesn't always pass, i think he's one of the most fun (not the best : Fun) players to watch in the Q !

Did anyone else got the chance to watch him play ? What do guys think of him so far ?
Same as you but I'm far less optimistic about him. I still think he lacks the hockey sense. Like Filatov. I admit I hated the pick at the time (still do). His attitude off and on the ice is still ****.

I know what you mean and yes he does have quite a few things to work on if he wants to play in the NHL. Like you say, he complicates his plays too much. And, like Hototogisu said, he will have strength issues at next levels. As for the attitude, i couldn't say as i never saw him in person, even less talked to him.

I just wanted to point out the surprising leap in terms of willingness to compete and intensity that suddenly made me change my point of view. I thought of him as a prospect with some skills but that was far from developing his potential. In fact, I was very much convinced he was done last year. Now, after the games i just saw, i have regained some faith in his potential

All in all, I just find that his curve of development, far from stalling, is getting very interesting. Where he might end up is an entirely different question. I'm just happy he might not be just another complete bust !

No idea but he does have Swiss citizenship from what so I assume yes. He's committed to playing for France though.

Anyway what struck me the most was holy **** Petr Nedved is playing for the other team and being easily the best player on the ice. Weird world. Guy's 40.
Well...Stumpel was a productive player for quite a while, if we got that out of a 6th round pick it would be hard to complain.

But the main reason I want Pribyl out of the Czech Republic if I think there's better opportunities to work on his speed elsewhere.

he still hold on the puck WAY too long, i wouldn't want to be one of his linemates. Saw him hold on the puck for 30+secs in the offensive zone in a recent game in Boisbriand and he had opportunity to pass it many times. He's much better in the defensive zone that he was last year i will give him that wich is a good sign if he wants to be a pro hockey player. Still, he need to use his linemates better.

Archamault scored again tonight and was -1. He was very implicated for Drummondville and was not far from the play most of the night.

I watched some of the Volts game last night, Archamault scored a nice tip in goal late in the 2nd but I turned it off after that.

WSH 1st rder Tom Wilson of Plymouth out 2-3 weeks with fractured knuckle(s). MTL prospect Charles Hudon of Chicoutimi out with concussion.

Concussion confirmed... his second I think? Not good

Not good at all, at this point if Hudon keeps it up he's going to be a target.

Question: Is Bozon's stats inflated by Smith and Lipon's play? Or is Bozon also a big part of his linesmate success.

Well considering Lipons 19 and still undrafted and Smith went in the 7th round last year (size issues), and bozon putting up 36 goals and 71 points in his FIRST year in the WHL, while lipon and smith have been there for 4 years + each

if you go by the stats (which again, i hate doing), but it would seem these 2 guys didnt really start putting up mass points till Bozon GOT there..

Bozon is what you call a finisher, would love to see him on galchenyuks wing one day

lipon is having an unbeleivable start to the season, but theres gotta be some reason he was not drafted while teams definately took looks at him since the other 2 on the line were drafted

but to answer the question definitivly, one would have to say that yes, bozon is more than a big part of his linemates success

Is Lipon a free agent or does he re-enter the draft in 2013?

He still eligible for 2013, and the previous period to sign him is well passed, so draft or sign him after the draft this summer. (that is obviously under the old CBA)

Bozon is a complimentary player. He cannot lead a team's offense, IMO. However, from what I've seen, he's a great complimentary player. You need to put him with good players, but he can keep up with great players. As someone else said, he's a finisher. He needs a set up man. He just happens to be very easy to set up, and very good at finishing what opportunities he gets.

Very solid. He got tasked with shutting down Boucher-Sarault-Galchenyuk, but Galchenyuk just took over. Vail is one awesome shut down forward, but he couldn't shut him down.

He also must have intercepted the puck 10 times. He's always seems to be in the right place at the right time. A very smart player.

To me, it's pretty evident who the best player is on that line. JC Lipon. Colin Smith and Tim Bozon are close though. From what I've seen Smith has been a little bit lucky with the puck, but he's still been great. Bozon is a complimentary player, so you want him to play with guys like that. He's a finisher and he does that better than most. He finishes most of chances. Very rarely do you see him create, so it's something I'd like to see him add to his arsenal of already dangerous offensive attributes.

Im a fan of Smith as well. Guy has a unique vision of the game and has a certain offensive flair. Bozon = Michael Ryder but a better skater and probably a less heavy wrist shot, although their releases are comparable.

His last season out of the USHL was very impressive indeed,Mike certainly possesses offensive talent and scoring abilities,winning MVP a couple of times in playoffs and at WJC's.I haven't given up on him,he's playing well enough at Western Michigan to catch the attention of Habs Director of Player Development Martin Lapointe.Go Mike Go!

I really like the progression he had though. Watching him this year and last year is very different. Much more implicated.
