Remember Pierre thought picking Carey Price was crazy when Gilbert Brule was still on the board...
Pierre and Geoff Molson are best friends...

And I was skeptical as to whether he would accept the job, but apparently on 990 they asked him and he said "if you are handed the keys to the greatest franchise in the world, you cannot say no".

Pierre did say the Price pick was a little strange, but not because Price is a bad player. At the time we had Theodore and Halak in between the pipes...We had no centres, and he had said we should draft either Brule or Kopitar, or Marc Staal. Brule was a really good player but it was injuries that ruined his career...Hard to predict those.
