Deschamps came to Toronto in one of those "change of scenery deals." Donít get us wrong -- he's talented enough; he has great speed and an exceptional release, but he needs to bulk up to earn a job in the NHL. One word: project.
The strong-skating Deschamps has played in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League the past two seasons and had 24 goals and 65 points in 65 games. He is at least a season away from making an impact in the NHL.
