I am sure all the other gm's and scouts knew about him and easily could of been selected earlier.

i know that houle stole 2 players, Markov and Ryder thus far. Kudos to Houle for that !
I won't credit Houle for any mid-to-late round picks. Houle
admitted that he had a direct hand in the selection of the
top picks [ie. first to third round players]. However, after
those picks, he turned things over to his scouting staff.
Those men I will give some credit for those picks.
Now, Jason Ward could still develop into a find player and
give Houle some kudos for his selection, even though Marian
Hossa was selected after him [and this fact was something
that the Montreal media have roasted him for, for a long
time now]. Personally, I think the jury is still out for
Ward. I liked what I saw of him late last season, but other
than one nice PPG this season, he has been pretty invisible.
