And after just that game...I wanted the Habs to pick him so much.....I guess the Habs brass was also present that day....
As far as Cole Cassels is all about, he make me remember his father.....yet, I thought Andrew was quicker on his feet. While both were/are thinkers of the game, Cole doesn't have a greater talent.....but potential might be there. He might actually be a fine bet in the 4th/5th round for any team.I would clearly not pick him earlier than that though.
I remember going to the old Forum with my Dad for a Habs practice in 1958/59. Jean Beliveau came to talk with my Dad and brought him a color picture of the 1957/58 Habs team SC winning of course and it was signed by the whole team.Still have the picture, I lived in Longueuil at the time and apparently so did Jean and he had invited my Dad to come down to the Forum. Montreal Canadiens fan ever since then and my favorite player, you guessed it Big Jean Beliveau, I now have his book,pictures etc, all autographed and McFarlane figures both home and away.
It doesn't make me feel old though, watching the Habs and being a fan makes me feel young and really happy to be a Hab fan.
