Danault looks to complete unfinished business from last season


 

Phillip Danault is entering his final season of junior hockey but he has some unfinished business to take care of before he makes the jump to pro.



Last season, after his Victoriaville Tigres were among the QMJHL's top teams in the regular season, they ignobly bowed out of the playoffs in a first-round sweep. Furthermore, on a more personal level, Danault found himself among the last cuts to make Canada's World Junior team last December. With this being his final season with the Tigres and his last year of eligibility with the Canadian World Junior squad, he expects better results and aims to end his junior career on a high note.… read more

Hope he does well. Most of us Hawks fans have high hopes for him.

It would be nice if we could swing a deal for him at Christmas time to bring him into Halifax. Could gel with old team mate Fournier and Drouin, Nate, Frk to make a great top 6... But best f luck to him regardless, he has a bright future and hopefully makes the WJC's.

Danault mentioned this: it's his belief that Victoriaville might be in the position to be a buyer in the Christmas trade period. Obviously, it's hard to say what will happen, but I think out of everything, he wants another chance to bring success to his hometown.

They had a surplus of 20's so it's not like they had a choice but losing Fournier, Gourde, Hynes, Finn, Hobbs and Dube are gonna kill any contending aspirations.

They definately aren't contenders and will most likely trade him.

He'll be the number 1 asset on the market though. The bidding war for him will be intense

He will fetch a hefty return. They should definately trade him and get some great young assets/picks. Moncton could use a top 6 forward

Wonder if Sweeney , Gagne , 2nd 2013 , 1st 2014 and 2nd 2014 would do the trick?
Maybe one of the picks comes back at the draft for Dubeau?

Sorry but as chsb put it, "Moncton have no trade assets", they're all in Bathurst So you can't get Danault.

One move like this and Moncton are out of assets and cellar dwellers for a couple of seasons....

I don't think RKI would like that

Danault would actually be an excellent fit on Bathurst given your defensive situation. What would you give up for Danault if you were LGM?

I don't understand!

Danault is a top-2 ines forward, not a defensive one.

Don't let good offensive numbers fool you. He's actually going to be on the world jr team in a checking role. He kills every penalty, won the 2nd most faceoffs in the league last year, and scouting reports say that he never takes a shift off. And that was as an 18yo. He'd be a perfect compliment for Bathurst. If you got him, you'd be the deepest club at center in the league.

Which Danault are you talking about? He's a defensive two-way forward who was cast in a checking role in the CANRUS Challenge, and will do so again this December.

Reesor's right. With two forwards in Bathurst who have never seen the defensive zone, Danault would be a welcome addition.

Danault could interest Quebec.

We will look for a second center at Christmas trade.

O'Brien, quoiqu'il arrive, est trop bon comme centre de 1e trio, pour y etre remplace par un gars comme Danault.
Aussi le Titan a un excellent centre de 2e trio en Lalancette.
Avec Lafontaine/Zboril/Stevens en plus au centre, ce n'est pas notre point faible.

Un gors ailier pour jouer sur le 2e trio pourrait peut-etre convenir SI Banville ou Salvail ne font pas la job.....on verra aux Fetes.

You can always move Zboril to the wing. Even Lalancette could go to the wing. If you had an opportunity to go for a guy like Danault, you'd do it. If Halifax got Danault, I don't think we'd have any problems at all moving Boudreau to the wing. Hell MacKinnon could move to the wing and we'd have a Drouin - Danault - MacKinnon line. Wouldn't be too shabby.

Don't care what you or in what language, any team that could acquire Danault would benefit their team significantly. Danault >> Lalancette. Bathurst would be stupid to pass on a player of his calibre if he was available.
