And he'll presumably just sign and come up with the Dogs for the end of the season anyway, if he doesn't get traded in the WHL. One silver lining to being on a weak team is that he gets to be The Guy, have a leadership role, all that.

Nice goal from going to the net hard. Between him and McCarron we are going to have two big bodies that crash the net all the time.

Vail's skating looked OHL average to me, he was definitely not one of the fastest.

I was reading the Edmonton newspaper and MacTavish was saying they were gonna draft Furcale with their 2nd round pick which was 2 apicks after Habs picked him.

I'm surprised McCarron doesn't have that many points considering who well he played in preseason.

He hasn't been seeing the score sheet much since that shoulder injury. If he's not playing with Horvat and Domi, then I'm not too concerned, I don't think we see him as the straw that stirs the drink, he's a menacing complimentary player.

Even Hunter at some point said that he wasn't expecting a whole lot of stats till mid-season. I'm not too surprised or panicked over it. Doesn't seem like he's playing top 6 either. Seems to me that he's at the point wondering what he can or can't do and what type of player he can become.

Skill wise, he's pulled off some pretty nice moves in viewings, but he doesn't do them often. Good wrister with great accuracy and he's terrific down low. Like I said though, his hustle stands out to me the most.

Hopefully someone who has seem him play more can talk about his progression and his upside.
All this is bang on. I would add that he's also chippy and can hold his own in a tilt and that he was seen as a top prospect in the 'Q draft, going 6th( I said 5th earlier on this thread, was one rank off) overall, behind Mackinnon, Drouin and Matt Murphy amongst others.

He himself compares his game to Patrice Bergeron, and while such an upside is not out of reach, that would be a big surprise for me. He does play a similar game though.

He's a very complete player, not unlike Bournival was it's true, but he doesn't have Michael's footspeed.

I think he's more creative with the puck than Bournival is, less straight-forward to the net. You'll notice that most of his goals come from 5 feet or less away from the crease, that's where he's going to score goals from.

I think Grégoire could become a defensive center for the Habs, one that excels in the faceoffs and on PK, that could chip in every now and then offensively.

His ceiling might be a guy like Dave Bolland, but everything would have to fall in place for him to become as good.

So far, he's on the right track. I think getting drafted by the Habs gave him a huge boost in confidence, and it showed in camp.

I've been following Jérémy since his Bantam AA days. He's coming from a hockey family, his father actually played in the 'Q too, before later playing in the LNAH. His grand-father coached the Faucons de Sherbrooke a while ago and both Jean-François(father) and Jacques(Grand-Father) are implied in minor hockey here in Sherbrooke.

He knows what it takes to become a Pro, and he's already acting like a Pro. He's training in Bromptonville during the summer with a lot of hockey players from Sherbrooke, David Perron being one of them.

Here's what I wrote the day of the draft about him.

Grégoire is from my hometown, and I've been following him for a few years now, dating from the days he was in Bantam AA.

Grégoire was one of the youngest players of this draft with Barkov and Mackinnon. He's a two-way Center that plays a tough, physical game. He has to work on his skating, but he gets around alright. The olympic ice in Chicoutimi didn't really help his case.

He's a guy who is built for the playoffs. He went on a tear in the post-season and scored half of what he did during the whole year.

He's a warrior that will do anything to win(block shots, win faceoffs, drop the gloves).

He was originally a top5 pick in the 'Q draft in 2011, so the potential is certainly there.

I think he could make it as a 3rd/4th liner in the NHL.

I'd say Grégoire is a lot tougher than the two others, even though Bournival and Vail are not softies, Grégoire can really be mean.

I know he's not afraid to drop the gloves, but I'm not quite sure yet if moving on to the pros he'll still be as aggressive physically of if he'll settle down because he won't be able to backup his play. That's probably the only question mark I have as far as his type of game goes, because for the rest, he's a gamer.

As pointed out, he'll have to work on his explosion on skates, but that's not too worrisome. He's definitely the worst of the three in that department though, Bournival being the faster skater.

Grégoire comes from a family of hockey players (his father played in the LNAH for Sherbrooke and his grand-father coached the Faucons de Sherbrooke in the 'Q).

Saw Reway got 3 points (1g 2a) in a back to back to back weekend, including 1 + 1 today. Has anyone been watching him play?

Well 7 in 13 isn't that bad considering he was 1 in 6 at the start. He's tied 4th on his team.

He seems to be real streaky. Pure goalscorers often are. They usually score in bunches and then disappear for a while. When they're on, the puck just ends up on their stick at the right time. Gionta is a bit like that. You watch him for games at a time and wonder how he ever scored 48 goals in a season. Then you look at the stat line a few games later and you see he's on pace for about 25-30 goals in a season.

But the Gionta example is about more than the streakiness of goalscorers. I think he's a good example of how hard you have to work at the other parts of the game to stay in the top 6 and contribute in small ways even when you're not scoring.

Anyway, he's another prospect I don't know much about in terms of immediate viewing. But my general sense is that he has a scoring instinct that you can't teach, and parts to his game that need learning to play pro. So, if he's not putting up points but working hard on getting better in other ways, then I wouldn't be too concerned.

He's still an overager...but he's making a strong case at least. He has as many points as Hartman, which is a good sign.
