This year might as well be the draft where Bergevin and Timmins attempt to get more grit and character into the system.That means no kid picked under 6'0 180.Why not try to bulk up and get the balance we really need? How many here recall the Habs teams of the 80's and how physical they were? Teams would come to the Forum and leave black and blue, and we still were in the top 6 year after year.There was a balance of skill, toughness and character throughout the whole lineup and it's been 20 years since we've had such a balance.It's time to make the right changes.
I would like to see more Mike McPhee and Sergio Mommesso type wingers, a C like Kirk Muller, a D man like Craig Ludwig and Odelein.Size on all lines and D pairings.Not indiscriminate size, but kids that can play in the NHL with enough hockey sense and skating to stick around.Unless a pure skill package falls into out lap on draft day, Timmins et al ought to pick the best kid with the most sandpaper and size.Young warriors who love to compete and won't leave you baffled with their disappearing ways.
