ps. I'm no French basher-- I'm bilingual and love Quebec's dual culture, but sometimes a minor few @%!?* in the French press (I can't even bring myself to read any of the junk La Presse's Tremblay writes) just spew some nationalist hockey banter and are, in short, clueless.

pps. Dave Perron and Giroux would have been great picks
They are still both great prospect who never even played in the NHL... wait 5-6 years and we will be more able to compare.
