There are three other centers available,so if they miss on one they have three more turns.Hopefully the Habs are lucky enough to sign a couple more like Kristo,as he's already a Habs draft pick.The two top College free agent defencemen Dekeyser and Sustr have signed with Detroit and Tampa Bay already.As soon as these players finish their senior seasons like Kristo has the rest will be signing.Montreal tried unsuccessfully to sign Dekeyser whose favorite team growing up was Detroit and Nick Lidstrom his Idol as a kid phoned to reassure him he was making the right choice.Let's hope Guy Lafleur and other Habs try to use their influence in signing some of these free agents.
Don't count on it. Carey as already said that he's returning to St. Lawrence next season.
