Chouinards pick wound up being Maxim LaPierre... Who played with the Montreal Rocket when drafted... The team has since been moved to PEI... Maxim also plays with fellow hab prospects, Michael Lambert, Corey Urquhart and Jimmy Bonneau
He's not working hard, he's floating on the ice, bad defensive game, always gets frustrated, attitudes problems and if he hasn't played with Sidney, he would have finish the year with 35-40 pts. He's small and play small
Petrov's pick was traded to washington 109th overall (Andreas Valdix) for their 4th round pick, 123rd overall Danny Stewart and their 7th round pick, 217th overall Oskari Korpikari (we didn't have a 7th rounder, it was traded to the Wild for Blouin Georgi Misharin 207th I think)
Lapierre I like a lot, as he plays a gritty intense game and works hard every night. He's still very raw, we'll see next year and the year after where his top end could be.
Flood is having a career year in the OHL on offense, as he is right around 40 pts, but his defensive zone play has been bad, although his team has struggled. He's gone from a +10 last year to -12 or so this year, but I would say some of that is his team. He is old enough to play in Hamilton/ECHL next year, so we'll see if he gets inked or goes back to juniors for one more year. Good at moving the puck, but he's very small/skinny and lacks strength. Should need a few years in the AHL before we can see what he can do.
Danny Stewart I like the little I've seen of him, but he's small and lacks strength. I'm glad to see he's not taking so many bad penalities (or not any time I watch or listen to Rimouski) and his play in his own end seems to have improved (haven't seen enough of him to really comment on his improvement over last year since I never saw him last year) I'd like to see how he does after another camp this summer, but he must get stronger for sure.
Oskari Korpikari I really like but have only seen him twice so far. He moves the puck well, has good size, seems solid in his own end, and makes smart decisions. Don't have any idea when he could be brought over, but another year or two in Finland would be my guess. I really look forward to seeing him and Lapierre in the future.
