Not to digress. Do you recall the 1992 draft? It was held at the old Forum. Canadiens fans actually booed Serge Savard's first round selection, David Wilkie.
They were hoping for Paul Brousseau. Wilkie's career was cut short because of nagging injuries. Some of you might remember Wilkie was part of that Igor Ulanov trade (1998). Whereas Brousseau wasn't couldn't enough to stick.
