I was definitely hoping for Brule or Staal and was shocked to hear Carey Price's name called.

It is impossible at this point to determine if we drafted the BPA with Price but what I can say with certainty is that this pick was very poor asset management. Price more than likely would not have cracked the top ten if we didn't pick him and he wasn't even a true consensus top goaltender in that draft as Rask was considered to be as good a prospect as Price.

With the whole hockey world fully expecting Montreal to select Gilbert Brule we probabaly should have traded down a little as that draft spot was a very valuable asset with Brule still on the board. We would have still been able to draft atleast one of Price or Rask and also add another high pick or decent prospect.

Like I said I am not really second guessing the choice of Price but how we decided to choose him.
