Desruisseaux's a guy I've never noticed, one way or another. He got over a goal / game as an overager, so I have no expectations at all for him.
I've always been a big proponent of the ECHL. It has its uses.
If you have a late-round player, for example Michael Pizzetta, and he's not able to play every game because there are too many bodies on the AHL roster, there should be a way for players like him to play in the ECHL and get quality minutes.
The Trois-Rivière team is going to be largely Québécois players, which is fine with me. Most of them have no NHL prospect in their future, but it also gives players coming straight from the Q a chance to try their hand at pro hockey. There's going to be a lot of Québécois players getting opportunities with that franchise.
