Watch for media columnists to make exactly that argument.

Sadly, there's articles on cyberpresse and ruefrontenac saying exactly this, and they list the players the Habs drafted ahead of him. I mean, how could they miss the talent of a guy picked -- what was it, 245th? It was obvious, how incompetent can scouts get?

I bet some fans will pick up your other arguments, including mistaking Plekanec for a Russian and suggesting Price should model his nightlife after Guy Lafleur's.

The saddest part about your sarcasm? Most arguments will be made with a straight face by other people.
