Okay, this is my first thread...just wondering, in all the talk about our guys there's almost nothing about Sam Morneau. Here's a kid that leads his QMJHL team in goals and points, was a significant scorer last year, yet there's no mention of him as even an option for next year's Rats/Checkers team. What's the deal? Am I missing something? He seems like a great "diamond in the rough" type of find. Thoughts?
He looks to be a nice find for the 7th round stats wise but I haven't seen the guy play so I can't really comment on his game. Plenty of players have scored tons in juniors only to never see it transfer to the pro game though. He'll still be able to return back to his junior team next year as an overager so that's probably why no one is mentioning anything about him being on Charlotte's team next season.
The day I attended our prospect camp 2 summers ago I thought Morneau performed better than anyone else out there except for Sutter. He is a bit on the small side, but given his performance in the Q I would think he would get a shot with Charlotte, if not next season, then the following one.
Not for everyone . . . for madmen only.
