I hated the pick at the time, but it had more to do with there being high profile names still available. Plus the fact that we had Jose Theodore, it didn't seem to address any of our needs. Well, give credit where credit is due..I guess Timmins and Gainey knew something was up with the goalie situation, and sure enough they reduced the size of the goalie equipment. They knew that since Theo was a small guy, he might have issues with the reduced pad sizes. At the time like most of us, I wanted Brule but would have been happy with Kopitar too (i was a little uneasy about Kopitar since he was coming from a non traditional hockey market). In the end, they made the right choice.

Now the question becomes, would you take Kopitar or Price if you had the chance to do it all over again?
