John Moore: Playing on Columbus which is a terrible team but he's doing okay.

Jordan Schroeder: Doing okay for a rookie on the Canucks but did you want a 5'9" center with the 18th Overall pick?

Tim Erixon: Having trouble putting up offensive numbers in the NHL, once again playing on Columbus.

Who else should the Canadiens have taken? The 12th best North American skater fell to them at 18th. Hell some Quebecers from what I recall wanted Jordan Caron because he played in the Q and called Leblanc a traitor.

Louis Leblanc was the best pick for Montreal to take at 18th.
Smart post. Not much to rebut this. We were doomed no matter what direction we took.
