TSN's Mackenzie has chosen Kopitar as a top ten shining rookie for this new season.
Imagine if we had Kopitar and Latendresse on the same line.Or Kopitar with Kovalev.If Kostitsyn was a left winger we would have the leagues first KKK line.
Of course at the time of that draft, they couldn't predict the emergence of Huet and further decline of Theodore.
Do you think we were heavily considering Kopitar?Did they even meet with him?
I do know that they had been following Price for years and felt he had the potential to be a franchise goalie for us.He is very mature for his years.Who do you think was their next 1st choice?
Many critics love Price as well, but were surprised that the Habs selected him considering their obvious lack of size at centre.
How do you feel about it now?
I didn't think Price was the right pick then and still don't.
Wanted Brule or Staal.
