Perhaps they'll let him re-enter the draft and see if anyone else wants him then offer him an AHL contract in August if he has nothing and we miss out on any August 15th NCAA UFAs we are looking at.

Tampa will pick him up and he will have a 100 pt season in the AHL and only be called up vs the Habs.

He has good skills; a nice shot and quick release, and he does have some wheels, but the latest news suggests that his overall game is not up to par and neither is his work ethic/attitude.
Sounds like he'll eventually be a 4th liner for the bruins or the leafs.

I'm not surprised, guys that have a hard time getting to PPG in the QMJHL in their fourth season at 19-20 years old while playing a soft top-6 skill only forward game are really good prospects and I would be highly surprised if he would make the NHL.

We should get Timmins to hire you instead of Churla.
I wanted Gallagher, watched him play a ton in Van. My point is, a lot of people here get it 'right' in the later rounds of the mock drafts.

Archambault will probably, as many Montreal prospects do, finally realize that he needs to get his act together, go to the gym, work on the ice, listen to his coaches, and go on to be good elsewhere. Frustrating, but as with so many others it wouldn't happen if he stayed.

He barely has AHL potential, let alone NHL.

His biggest issue is a lack of vision and hockey sense making him a one dimensional offensive player.

Post your picks for this year's draft. They will be perfect, as usual, and send the link to Timmins. You'll be hired and we'll have a perfect draft every year, you'll become the head scout, and we'll win 10 Stanley cup in a row.
