Post-postscript: Michael McCarron gets praise from an NHL scout.

Interesting article in La Presse, in which a scout not affiliated with the Canadiens provides independent confirmation that Michael McCarron is now a pretty good prospect.

He sees him now as a centre, and no longer as just a right winger, thinks he could play a role like Keith Primeau, a second-line centre.
«Il y a un an, plusieurs personnes entretenaient des doutes à son endroit, et j'étais un de ceux-là. Mais tous ont changé d'opinion, a admis le recruteur qui tient évidemment à conserver l'anonymat. Il est en voie de s'établir comme le joueur qu'on projetait.»

"A year ago, many held doubts about him, and I was one of them.  But everyone's changed their minds," admitted the scout, who'll remain anonymous.  "He's on his way to develop as the player he was projected to be."

Good news, it's positive to get some corroboration.  We look over at the Sabres and Sens and Oilers and their greener grass, and despair that our farm teams will ever start contributing top end talent.  Maybe Michael McCarron isn't that far off after all.
