Great pick in that spot. I was affraid they'd make a reach and get him earlier to appease the crowds. But in that spot, in seems great value.

Ranked 95th among NA skaters by Central Scouting so it seems like a reasonable choice

I guess organizational depth is never a bad thing... maybe one of these diamonds in the rough will surprise us

Hudon is a good player.
Will he one day make in the big league?
Only time will tell...

If he does take power skating lessons seriously he might have a shot cause of his hockey IQ.

Yeah add some weight et get faster, the resst will follow. You cannot teach hockey sense like this. Saw him play and i like what i see. Next year he will probably play on the first line in Chicoutimi, we will see if he's that good.

Wasn't Hudon on the Canada U18 team? Will probably be on the world juniors?

I'm trying to figure out why Wikipedia has Calgary owning Hudon and this pick. We sent this 5th rounder to them in the Cammy/Bork trade. How'd we get it back?

EDIT: nevermind, this is our own 5th rounder, not Columbus' (that we got conditionally in the Wisniewski trade). Someone had done a bad editing job on Wiki and messed up the draft order (which is why you don't trust Wiki when the info is recent).

We received the pick in the Wizniewski trade with Columbus. Our 5th was traded to Calgary.

As for the Hudon pick, it's not bad. It's not my favourite one, but at that spot, it's a good gamble. Very talented player.

Doubt it. But he could sneak in on the 4th line.

I'm happy to have him. He's an offensively dangerous player and I think he has the will to get better and better.

Apparently since Gauthier traded the Habs 5th instead of this one to the Flames, Habs have to give their 4th in 2013 to the Isles as part of the Wisniewski trade.

Yeah, I eventually figured that out. At the time of my post, Wiki had the Hudon pick as owned by "Calgary (from Columbus via Montreal)", so someone else derped and confused me.

Really? Wasn't the Wisniewski trade for our 2nd last year, and a conditional 5th this year (which would become a 7th if Wiz didn't sign with them, which he did)?

Well that explains it, not surprising from RDS

Apparently, we had to make a choice between giving a 5th 2012 or a 4th 2013 to the Isles.
We decided to give a 4th in 2013 probably because of our 3 2nd round picks already in bank.

Alright choice. Considering the round, could be a good choice.

I believe it is exactly the opposite & I'll use Latendresse & Riberio as examples. It seemed like they felt it was their God given right to wear the CH, thus they did not have to put any extra effort into their play because they were Quebecois, thus if you a Quebec born player on this that puts extra effort into their game it is the exception, not the rule.


That said, I believe Louis Leblanc will be the exception.

Some good reviews. Comparisons to Derek Roy.
