3. Only 5'11 and 180 pounds? Wow....no way he'll be a second liner at that height...to be good as a forward you need to be at least 6'2...No way he's a top 6 forward...hey maybe he's a bottom 6 forward! Let's check his fights.
4. NO FIGHTS!!!?? Man this guy is useless....career ahler.

Essentially if you want to know a player's potential on the Canadiens board you look at his points...size...and fights...don't like what you see in either 3 categories...then he must be a useless player.
Well how off are they when even our most highly touted forward prospects have trouble consistently surpassing 45 points a year?

It might be a little harsh, but you do know it's more realistic than some posters who just 2 years ago thought names like Stejskal and Conboy would be figuring into our lineup by now.
