Brière is just one of the several "COULD HAD HAVE" players that Habs management passed on. They drafted Matt Higgins instead of him and they missed the oportunity to take him from the waivers...

The juniors' draft is now history... No Iginla, no Hossa (Marian of course), no Gagné, no Bergeron, no Carter, Getzlaff, or Richards instead of Kostitsyn and Uruquart, no Brad Richards instead od Ribeiro ! No Frolov and Volchenkov instead of Hainsey and Hossa (Marcel, this one...). Price instead of a D-man like Staal or Bourdon, even Brulé would had been fine. Lots of good natural scorers and great skaters in that bunch.

+ They let young D-men like Beauchemin and Hainsey go for sweet NOTHING !

On a positive note, Komisarek, Higgins, Chipchura, Perezhogin, Plekanek and Latendresse and Lapierre could save the day.
