With the 46th overall pick in the 2nd round, the Wild select Raphael Bussieres




Quote:
For Raphael Bussieres and the Baie-Comeau Drakkar, the 2011-12 season seemed to come in three parts. One of the top teams in the league during the first half of the year, the Drakkar were buoyed by Bussieres scoring at a torrid pace. But in the second half, both the Drakkar and Bussieres cooled off until just days before the start of the post season, the team opted to make a coaching change. The gamble paid off with Baie-Comeau upsetting Victoriaville in the first round and Bussieres rediscovering his offensive touch.

In total, Bussieres finished the year with 21 goals and 44 points in 56 games. But, as mentioned, 37 of those points came before January 1st. In the post season, he saw action in five games and tallied three goals and eight points over that period of time.

Not feeling this one. But then again, what do I know. Not a fan of the Q.

Russo: Bussieres scored 44 points in 56 games. LW. Known for hard, accurate shot, skill.

Buss sounds like a Coyle/Larsson type of player. Plays a simple game but solid offensive package.

Interesting quote from the Canadian link above

Quote:
Bussières answered the bell and went toe-to-toe with Matthew Dumba at the CHL’s Top Prospects Game after his Team Orr linemate Radek Faksa was sent flying by the Red Deer Rebel defenseman. It was a move that showed he is more than willing to do what it takes to win, and it came from a kid who had missed time this season due to a concussion.

Sounds like an inconsistent scorer with grit. Leaving frk and thrower on the board?

I don't dare to question Wild's draft picks, I just want to see what this kid's capable of eventually.

Interesting note: Bussieres dropped the gloves in the CHL Top Prospects Game. His opponent? Matt Dumba.

Sounds he fits well with the Wild liking for strong forwards. Should fit with Coyle, Bulmer, Zucker, Larsson.

A skilled, inconsistent power forward with concussion history? We have the right mentor for this kid

From Corey Pronman. Also I don't know if a lot of you follow him on Twitter but he's great. Might tweet a lot but it's all about prospects.

MIN takes Bussieres. A bit of a risk/reward pick. Has a lot of offensive tools, but was inconsistent this year.
Looks like if he can build on his strong first half he can be a very good player. Was wondering if they'd take Frk if available.
