Houle chose Ward instead of Marian Hossa ..
Savard chose Komisarek, Higgins, Kastitsyn and Perezhogin.. Is that bad?? Hell NO!
Prospects are all suspects until they make the big show. Never forget that. As far as I know, Houle has got 4-5 of them in the big show. Which is much better than what his predecessor had done the last 5 years of his tenure. Andre Savard? Yes, the kids are still young, but some of his young guns were overblown by Savard himself last season.
In ALL his interviews, he was passing over Houle's picks to promote his own picks. Those who really follow the Habs on a everyday basis can attest to that. How many times did he rave avec Higs and Komi or Perezhogin, while not saying a damn word about Ryder, Ward, Hainsey, Hossa and the rest of Houle's picks?
Higgins and Komi are great picks. As for Perezhogin, the jury is still out. And Kastitsyn, who knows? Until they make it to the big show, we'll never know. You can gloat about them as much as you can, it won't do squat until they make it.
