Marc-Andre Thinel

I was wondering what's his history with the habs? I wasn't familiar with canadians prospect during the time his rights belongs to the Habs.

He seemed to have decent height at 6'0" a score a ton of goals in the Q

1997-98 Victoriaville Tigres QMJHL 58 7 10 17 20
1998-99 Victoriaville Tigres QMJHL 66 45 58 103*draft year, 5th round
1999-00 Victoriaville Tigres QMJHL 71 59 73 132
2000-01 Victoriaville Tigres QMJHL 70 62 88 150

103 points during his draft year and he fell to the 5th round. What were his flaws? Was he small at the time? Played with good linemates?

He's ripping up the French league (not saying much), but didn't fare well in the AHL. Does he have the talent to come back to the AHL at 28 years old?

Talent was never the problem, Thinel was a star in the Q and his brother from what I recall was ok (I believe we invited him to the rookie camp). But M-A lacked strength and was on the soft side. He had some nice hands though, I'm not surprised to see him doing well in France.
