    That is more like what I am thinking. Trying to compare JL's path to the pro levels with that of 2 high draft choices is just reaching too far. I do expect JL to thrive at the NCAA level. I have had 2 NHL scouts say to me that this kid's game is just made for NCAA play. Could he be the RPI version of Martin St. Louis or Brian Gionta? Maybe not, then again, maybe a close approximation wouldn't be so bad.

    Of course, some of us have signatures that are so old that we never post them.

    Keep an open mind. Just don't be so open-minded that your brain falls out.

    I don't want you to get too amped up Aspy, but the BRO just might be standing next to Saponari (to Luke's left in the photo). I honestly can't tell from the pic (VS is 6'0 190 ish) but that should be enough to get you goin'....Maybe the BRO has begun his recruitment ? !

    What me speculate? No. Here's my PP for 11 season. JL,VS, Johnny Rocket, Koudys and Bailen Never too early to dream.

    I don't think that is VS.

    Weaver may be correct about this. 5'7" may be closer to the truth.

    I dunno, he's been 5'7 an awfully long time, Hockey Canada had him listed at 5'7 in 2008 & 2009. If he's still 1.7m tall, it may be time for some HGH....

    I had thought that Brandon Pirri in this interview https://www.thepipelineshow.com/clips...Pirri_Nov5.mp3 on the Pipeline Show at the time of the 2008 WJAC ignored Laliberte, but I was wrong as he mentions both JD'A and JL.

    I think 5'7" could even be a slight exaggeration. Doesn't mean he can't score 30 in one year for us.

    I think his weight might be more of an exaggeration than his height...as I stated long ago, this kid needs to have an IV drip of protein/carb shakes running 24-7.. With 2-3 daily trips to Burger King for Double Whoppers with cheese.

    Watching this video again https://www.tvcogeco.com/cornwall/gal...acob-laliberte and having seen him play in person, I would say that 5'7" maybe 5'8" is pretty accurate.
