The center piece of the deal from a Habs standpoint was Thibault, one of the best prospect goalies of the time, but the pick Quebec used to draft Thibault was acquired in the Lindros trade. Does Quebec have the package that's attractive to the Habs when Roy got dealt, or do the Habs instead go with the rumored Detroit package? Without Thibault, do the Habs instead go for Fiset, but insist on an upgrade on the Rucinski/Kovalenko aspect of the deal, weakening the Av's future top 2 lines? Who knows? Houle was an idiot, so for all be know, he takes Fiset, Kovalenko and Rucinski.
I'm convinced that he just takes Fiset.
