Good question, but Picard was the guy JM/PG wanted from the opening of training camp. Now Picard is playing like everyone said he would when he was signed last summer. Henry and Weber had good camps that slowed the decision process a bit. The knock on Henry is his speed. Having watched him for the past 2 1/2 years I'm not convinced it's as bad as everyone claims. He isn't the fastest but he is able to make up with experience, good positioning and his long reach. He's always had a plus stat for a stay at home dman that generally plays against the top lines (granted AHL lines). He is is an unselfish teammate, tireless worker and is a very tough competitor. Having said all that I have no idea why the Habs don't give him a chance.
