Canadiens feel lucky after scoring Sebastian Collberg in NHL draft

"He’s an outstanding skater and he’s on the puck all the time," Timmins says

“Overall we’re very happy,” said Timmins. “For the most part, we were happy to see the players we wanted were there when we drafted. We added a lot of power and scoring and we added some toughness and grit. On draft day, it’s like Christmas Day when Santa Claus arrives and we open our gifts and now it’s time to get to work and help them reach their full potential.”

Under the new regime, some of that work will fall to Martin Lapointe and Patrice Brisebois, and Bergevin said “they better put some freakin’ mileage on and start working because that’s why they’re here.”

Timmins said the Canadiens stuck to their plan of taking the best player available.

“We wanted to draft a goaltender and we came close but we couldn’t get one in the spots we were looking at,” he said.
