Habs Future

beaulieu 1

Three Stars of the Week

1. D Nathan Beaulieu makes his premiere in the Three Stars selections with a rather heavy week that saw him play a total of five games in seven nights. Beaulieu’s week began representing the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in the Subway Super Series, featuring the stars of the league against a team of select Russian junior players. Beaulieu was held off the scoresheet on Monday, but then added an assist in the second game and scored the lone shootout goal for Team QMJHL. Beaulieu than returned to the Saint John Sea Dogs to begin a three games in three night schedule. Beaulieu would pick up a single assist in the team’s win on Friday against PEI Rocket, than doubled that amount on Saturday, including an assist on the game-winning goal. Beaulieu’s final game on Sunday showed despite a heavy schedule he had kept something in reserve as he scored the opening goal of the game for Saint John, than again assisted on the game-winning goal. Beaulieu’s goal and four assists has him on the best points streak of his season, with a goal added on to his totals from the previous week he has two goals and four assists in a four game streak. Beaulieu’s six goals and eleven assists have raised him to the leading defensive scorer on his team and 8th overall in the QMJHL amongst defencemen. Beaulieu was drafted by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1st round, 17th overall in the 2011 Entry Draft.

2. RW Brendan Gallagher is not letting the pressure of having to be the MVP for the Vancouver Giants distract him as he continues his march for a fifty goal in fifty game season. Gallagher’s two goals and two assists helped his team to a perfect week that saw them rise to the top of their division. After being held off the scoresheet on Wednesday, Gallagher resumed his normal habits in short order. Gallagher would score the initial tying goal against the Kelowna Rockets on Saturday night, than later marked an assist to help his team once again come from behind to tie the game in an eventual 3-2 victory. Gallagher mirrored his Saturday night scoring with another goal and assist in familiar fashion to help the Giants out of a difficult game. With the Giants down 3-1, Gallagher assisted on a goal to bring the score to 3-2, than with close to a minute remaining in the game, scored the game-tying goal to force overtime and bring about an eventual shootout victory. The Vancouver Giants have a notable record of 8-1-0 this year when Gallagher has a two-point game. Gallagher is 5th in the WHL in goals and 7th overall in points. Gallagher was drafted by the Montreal Canadiens in the 5th round, 147th overall in the 2010 Entry Draft.

3. RW Alexander Avtsin after a notable slump to the start of his season, the skilled winger broke out and became the impact forward for Hamilton in their single win during the week. After scoring his first goal of the season and the only goal of the game for Hamilton during a 4-1 loss to the Chicago Wolves on Tuesday night, Avtsin was held off the scoresheet as the Bulldogs were blown out on Thursday 8-0 by the Grand Rapids Griffins but his talent emerged to salvage the Bulldogs week on Sunday. Avtsin recorded three assists to help Hamilton to a 5-2 win over the Binghamton Senators, his first three-point game in the AHL to date. Avtsin was drafted by the Montreal Canadiens in the 4th round, 109th overall in the 2009 Entry Draft.

On The Radar: LW Olivier Archambeault scored a goal and two assists during the week. C Michael Bournival is expected to return from his shoulder injury this week. G Peter Delmas is 3-1-0 in the ECHL this season. D Darren Dietz had a goal and two assists while going +7, raising him to +19 on his season, none better amongst all defencemen in the WHL, Dietz is also tied for defensive scoring on his team. D Jarred Tinordi collected an assist and went +3.

Question Marks: LW Alain Berger will be relegated to the bubble category unless he makes improvements to his season. C Gabriel Dumont is expected to be out for two to three weeks from a shoulder injury. D Brendon Nash is out recovering from shoulder surgery in October and is expected to miss at least three more months.

    Thoughts from watching the Hamilton Bulldogs play the Peoria Rivermen, Peoria won 3-2 in the shootout, Ben Bishop was in nets for them which was about 50% of their NHL-capable talent in the arena. Jonathan Cheechoo, it is honestly depressing to know that he once led the NHL in goals.

    The defence is pitiful, 2012 can not come fast enough so Pateryn, Tinordi, Ellis and Beaulieu can get to work making it respectable. Losing Nash to injury and St Denis to the big club makes them utterly incapable of moving the puck with any efficiency. The game was close mostly because St Louis may have even less talent on their farm team than MTL does.

    Alexander Avtsin: You can see the skill, can skate well and shows some good stickhandling but still needs to use his teammates more and gain some weight. Did go to the net and stand there for a few times looking for a rebound though. Denied on the shootout, went in and just ran out of room as he overhandled the puck trying to fake out the goaltender.

    Alain Berger: Decent effort, but no notable moments with the puck, not afraid to work along the boards but at present projects at best as a checker, maybe.

    Phil DeSimone: Probably the least impressive of the Avtsin/Leblanc line, but he did covert well on Nattinen’s drop pass to go top shelf so there is that working for him. Can’t say much else about him was impressive.

    Louis Leblanc: Was paired with Avtsin for a good part of the game, good agility along the boards and decent stickhandling, engaged throughout the game and along with Avtsin/DeSimone was the most dangerous line Hamilton could skate really in terms of talent and generating offence. ran out of room in the shootout and but also disappointing because he went for the same move the previous two shooters were stymied on.

    Joonas Nattinen: Similar to Berger, did not do anything exceptional, engaged well along the boards, did not do many faceoffs and did not dominate them either. You really did not notice him until he made a very good break into Peoria’s zone and made a great drop pass to DeSimone who roofed it to give the Dogs their only lead of the game at 2-1. He tried to do a little more later on but nothing happened for him. Could be a decent checking centre in a couple years.

    It’s called being a 4th-round project player. What do you think the transition rate of 4th round selections to the NHL is? Best ones in 10 years have been Hjalmarsson, Visnovsky and Ehrhoff on D, Stillman and Callahan at forward and James Reimer, Ray Emery for goaltending.

    Great news, Michael Bournival back in line-up tonight.

  6. twocents says:

    This whole looking over past drafts picks for mistakes is a mug’s game.

    You can do it for any franchise over the years and find tons of mistakes.

    Just to use a high standard, how about last year’s champs.

    2007- Zach Hamill over Logan Couture, Brandon Sutter, Ryan McDonagh, Lars Eller, Kevin Shattenkirk, Max Pacioretty, David Perron, P.K. Subban, Wayne Simmonds, Carl Gunnarsson

    2005 Matt Lashoff ahead of J.T. Oshie, Steve Downie, James Neal, M.E. Vlasic, Pavelec, Paul Stasney, Mason Raymond, Kris Letang, Jamie Quick

    That’s just going back a few years… you get my point.

    Having said that, getting a first overall and blowing it is a little harder to do and that’s why the Wick/Savard situation stings.

    But situations like AK happen every year, to numerous teams. At least he’s still in the Bigs and scoring 20 goals a year. Zherdev isn’t and he was picked forth. Jessiman picked two spots back has never made it.

    The hard pill of it, is that 2003 was kinda like shootin’ fish in a barrel and we ended up with a middling sized one instead of a prize winner.

    “I don’t like that,” newly appointed coach Hitchcock told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch of the upper body/lower body classifications. “It’s stupid because all it does is make (the media) do more work and mistrust us. What’s the big deal? A guy has a sore shoulder, he has a sore shoulder. I don’t like upper-body, lower-body. … To me, if a guy’s hurt, he’s hurt and I’ll tell you what it is and go from there.”

    Showing that he also likes making jokes, Hitchcock had a quick answer when asked for an update on Huskins.

    “Lower body,” he said.

    Hilarious.

  14. Timo says:

    Not to diss this report too much, but Habs future is really rather bleak as long as Gauthier and Martin are running this team. We can have 12 Crosby’s and 6 Shea Webers in the waiting, the team will still suck with the current management.

    • kempie says:

      I hate to imagine guys like Gallagher, Tinordi, Beaulieu & Leblanc after JM gets his hooks into them.

    • Bripro says:

      I’d agree to meet you half way Timo.
      JM is a very effective defensive coach. But he doesn’t know how
      to coach offensive defence.
      Last night’s third period was a disaster from the second they dropped the puck.
      They fell back into a boxed formation and gave up mid-ice.
      It made the Sabres’ task that much easier to penetrate.
      Even after the first goal, the only line that attempted any offence was Cole/Max/DD.

    • Ehabs9 says:

      I agree and disagree. I think finally, over the last 2-3 years this team has drafted half decently. And I’ll give credit to PG where credit is due in that respect. However I don’t think the prospects we’re amassing will be all that useful under JM.

    • G-Man says:

      Drank some Hyperbole juice, Timo? A dozen Crosbys and 6 Shea Webers and I think the Habs could excel under Bob Berry ffs.

    • lukas-joshua says:

      Timo If you hate the Habs so much you should put a Boston jersey on, and get out of here.

    The more those PIMs go up for Tinordi the better. I have my tickets for when he and the Knights come to Ottawa.

    You have great access to the players after the game and I’m going to hand him a picture of Milan Lucic in the old cross-hairs and let him know that’s his number one responsibility once he’s in the NHL. To smash Lucic’s face in!

    Hopefully he can play defense too…

    Thanks for the update Serious!

  20. secretdragonfly says:

    we can dream about the day when Beaulieu and Gallagher are playing for the big club and lighting it up, right?

    On a somewhat unrelated but lighter note, just got my Canadiens Official Gear catalogue – looks like the boys had some fun in the studio. Pleks is sporting a very dapper (what else) turtleneck, while Gill is busting his best gangsta move.

  21. Morenz7 says:

    Thanks Robert. Great job. PS saw that goal by Beaulieu on the live broadcast; I think we may have finally landed a gem—or rather, had one fall in our laps.
