however, if Pronger watched a lot of this kid and he really was the driving force behind us drafting him then I'll defer to him and eat my crow if/when Morin exceeds his projected draft status. Everyone was up in arms when we traded Oulette (you remember him, he was our next franchise goalie???) and I was too until I read that it was Bernie Parent who told Clarke to trade him that he wasn't coachable and would never amount to much in the NHL. THOSE guys know far better than any of the rest of us about the "IT FACTOR" and if Pronger stamps his approval on Morin then that would be good enough for me. However, it still remains to be said that EXPERT scouts don't agree with what is being said about Morins potential in this thread.
The fact remains that we didn't address the two biggest needs for this team with this draft when we had a very valuable pick. We should have used our pick and/or other assets to move up and get one of Jones/Nurse/Risto to address our defensive needs or trade for Schneider to address our goaltending needs.
You act like its just so easy to move up and grab one of those players. You sound like a little crybaby honestly, we all know Holmgren is always doing what he can to improvw this team. Im sure he tried to move up and Im glad he didnt, the difference between who we got and who we would have got wouldnt be worth what we would have to give up. I do agree on Schneider though, but that deal was agreed upon Saturday night.
