Habs wanted to add size and having picked Morin would have allowed them to wait till second round to get McCarron.

Anyone has more information, Audio or anything?
If true, MB should thank god that it didn't happen... terrible!

Note : By terrible I mean that it would be terrible to waste assets to move up to get Morin but even more terrible to pick Morin at 9th overall (yeah I know that the Flyers took him at 11th but it was still a bad pick IMO).
