Lapierre: A Special Player

I have only recently become a Lapierre fan. I really feel as though we may be witnessing one of the most important Canadiens of this generation. I see him as a budding special player, like Jarvis, Carbonneau or even Gainey.

I believe he will be our 3rd line centre for the next ten years.

Well it's not like this has been that great of a generation for Canadiens fans. So really the competition is pretty poor.

He is playing damn good hockey though.

It says something when Lapierre has out performed and out efforted almost all of our top (and highly paid) players (except for Markov).

Time for a big change. He's only going to get better and be a good 3rd line center in the future.

Funny thing Lapierre become a better player when Laraque told him to knock his crap off. Laraque may have been worth the money just to get Lappy concentrated on hockey instead of yapping the opponents ears off

Quailer is not a grinder IMO.

Latendresse - Lapierre - Pacioretty is good enough for me !

I really like our current lineup !
We might miss some size at center but we have a really good fast skilled core.

Both Kostitsyn (Highly skilled players but very inconsistant both are not amazing skaters but they are very elusive and gritty)
Lapierre (Speed, Grit, Size)
Pacioretty (Speed, Size, Skilled)
D'agostini (Speed, skilled)
Higgins (Speed, reliable defensively, skilled)
Latendresse (improved speed, skilled, grit)

I truly believe that a guy like Lecavalier(dreaming) would put us higher than we are with his size,skills in the middle.

I really like our young core !

Paciorrety I believe has an upside much higher than Lapierre, he'll be a 1st liner. Quailer is used a lot for PK so that is why I mentioned him but he and Conboy may never make the big show anyway, just happy seeing some big players for once that seem to have the ability to skate.

I used to hate Lapierre with passion and I very rarely one of our players.

But he's been doing great this season, I'm amazed.

This year....I never saw Carbonneau or Gainey play, but I am relishing the thought of his progression

When he was playing in junior, I had the chance to see him a few times playing with Urquhart, Lambert and Bonneau, (was centering Rockets' second line), and I always thought this guy would become a pretty high quality grinder one day for us, but I have to admit he exceeded all my expectations.. Its incredible how confident this guy is on the ice, he is already acting like a young leader for this team.. His speed, size, grit, charactere and decent skills makes him the perfect grinder every teams would dream of.. Incredible how improved he is from the start of the season, he is an exemple of determination for anyone..

He will never be a big scorer in this league since he hasnt the best hands, neither the best vision out there, but every point he will get will be entirely deserved.. This guy plays the game with so much passion and dedication its sick! I dont know if he will keep it up all his carreer long since it ask alot of energy, but what we get now is without a doubt priceless!

I have become such a huge fan of his this year. I am sure like many other Hab fans am surprised to see just how good he has become.

You worry about some players and whether they can keep up their play throughout their careers. But his style is so simple, all about hard work and putting forth the effort.

You never have to worry about his linemates because his work ethic will rub off on them, just like sergei tonight.

When Komisarek eventually gets the C, I would not be surprised to see him with the A.

Hes awesome! he puts so much effort in every shift. hes hungry for the puck, he works hard. wins most of his puck battles, always keeps his feet moving and you can tell we wants it! I`d take a player like him over a player with an immense amount of talent who is lazy and doesnt put as much effort any day of the week! Keep it up Lapy!

Sure he is playing very well, doing what he has to do with his talent level but most important player of this generation? No way.

He's always been one of my favorite prospects and I was pretty disappointed with his play last year and even a little bit at the start of this year...But he's finally become what I knew he could be and I'm really happy. He's awesome.

i agree with you i wouldnt go as far as saying he will be one of the most important players of this generation. Maybe one of the most hard working thus far.

He is my favorite Hab so I am biased but he is talented. When he becomes comfortable in his role he will be a good player. He will be borderline top 7 forwards with grit and speed. Think Mario Tremblay with speed.

A very good comparison. Morrow, Madden, Draper.

I would agree with the tunnel vision but not with the idea he wont become a scorer. Sometimes he does have Ron Flockhart, Brian Savage playmaking abilities lol.
