It is very faint but I remember it was Renaud Lavoie, talking about draft day a couple of years ago, saying that management had asked Timmins to *heavily favor* a Dman during the 2006 draft.
I think he wanted Mitera (who was taken 1 spot in front of Fischer).

For Leblanc, no matter how high Timmins had Leblanc on his list (yes I saw the pic with his name on top), I felt it was more of a publicity stunt that a quebecer was drafted in MTL.

As for Mantha, a scorer that size is impressive but a few reports I read this evening said he still needed to learn how to use it, become grittier.
