That's awesome. I bet Boucher being part of our staff had a lot to do with this. We've grabbed three guys (Masse, Dumont, Lefebvre) off of Drummondville's Memorial Cup winning roster.

I guess since he's only eighteen we can sort of count him among our draft picks.

That already looks like a good draft class to me. And THREE Quebecois players there, nothing for the French media to complain about. Got to get me some Voltigeurs/Mooseheads tickets and post some reviews on these guys.

I like Phillipe, hes a guy whose probably destined to start off in Cincinatti, but hes the kinda signing I want the Habs to get. He has a roof of a high-end checker, he plays hard, he plays smart and is good defensively. His raw skillset is what kept him from getting drafted.

Exactly. These are the types of moves that could pay high dividends in the future & something we got away from over the past decade. This is the type of move that in the past got us guys like Mike Keane.

Will Lefebvre work out? I dont know - but still a nice, complimentary move by mr gainey.

I had Lefebvre high on my board before the Draft (and by high I mean like around 100ish), I really was surpised he wasn't taken. IMO he has a decent chance to be a NHL'er and at the very least a marginal one.

how do you know?

The kid was 17 recently, a growth spurt could explain things,

Because I'm looking at his weigh-in from the spring supplied by ISS. He had no combine weigh-in though because he wasn't invited. A 15 pound gain over a handful of months would be quite alarming :lol:

Every year, the habs sign an undrafted Quebec player who is under 6 feet tall.

Beauregard, Desharnais, O. Latendresse, Masse, and now Lefebvre, and whoever else I'm forgetting.

The strategy is low risk, is there any precedent to believe it is *not* low reward?

:lol: True, true! I somehow don't think we will see much of Lefebvre in the future. If, at some time, he turns out to be a decent 4th line player, then all the better. For now I am expecting him to have a career in the ECHL or the AHL.

Well it may not be the greatest of precdent for all of you, but I believed Lefebvre was a 4th-5th rounder in this years draft, so it could be low risk possible medium reward.
