A few things that stood out:

I'm a Gauthier basher but for all those saying "timmins was held back":

Quote:
Jarred had limited minor hockey experience at an elite level, but Timmins recognized his potential and convinced former general manager Pierre Gauthier to move up in the draft to get the defenceman.
Another is I heard Jacques Beaulieu was GM and Coach of Sarnia, coaching Galchenyuk. I completely wrote off the relation to Beaulieu citing it as coincidence and never bothered looking it up. Kind of cool.

Lastly:

Quote:
St. Denis played well enough that the Canadiens were reluctant to expose him to waivers this month, but the team took advantage of an exception in the rules to sign him to an AHL contract until the lockout is over.
Can't we do this for Eller too? Eller could use a chance to play in an offensive role. If St Denis could, can't Eller too? Granted, does Eller want to sign an AHL deal? After playing 2 full years in NHL maybe it's not his cup of tea but I would've liked him there is all.
