For that, you need to have watched the game, according to Stéphane Waite, former Tricolore goaltending coach.
In the latest episode of La Presse Sports’ Sortie de zone, Alexandre Pratt and Simon-Olivier Lorange discussed a number of topics, including Primeau.
In the excerpt on the young goaltender, you can hear Waite give his opinion on Primeau’s work, and he said he was very impressed with his performance on Thursday night.
“His positioning is a little more advanced or more hollow, depending on the passing options. He was very good. Me, he impressed me yesterday.” – Stéphane Waite
But in Primeau‘s case, his young age attracts all kinds of teams, from the New Jersey Devils to the Philadelphia Flyers.
If the CH wants to send him back to the AHL, he’ll have to go through the ballot, and there’s a good chance he’ll be claimed, something the Habs want to avoid.
With his performance yesterday, he certainly attracted the interest of several teams. What’s more, several scouts were on hand for the game.

His value has certainly just increased, but we shouldn’t get too excited about this performance, because it takes a lot more than two or three games to convince an organization to want to complete a trade with the CH.
No, we won’t be getting another first-round pick for Primeau.
Waite also made it clear that he likes Primeau’s style of goaltending.
“What I liked is that he’s a much more fluid goalie, much less robotic, much more instinctive. His lateral thrusts are incredible.” Stéphane Waite
On the other hand, what helps a goalie develop the most is to play more, and being the CH’s third goalie won’t give him enough of that…
