Well, playing in Quebec is why some hab fans figure the Preds will give the habs Radulov for free.

Timmin's picks are usually hard working players who have the respect of their peers.

In the later rounds they take chances on skilled players. Archambault (originally the first overall pick into the Q) Avitsin. Trunev, who at the time was said that if he was a few days older would have been a 1st round pick the next year. Go even further back with Corey Locke. Unfortunately, none of them really turn it. Gallagher might.
