I have every reason to be optimistic that Mikey will prove Timmins, Bergevin & the Scouting team were well founded in their decision to draft him in the 1st round. Getting Christian Thomas for Danny Kristo is another feather in the Habs cap IMO. This week just keeps improving, Flyers signing of Vinny just a small sample of how lucky the Habs have been.
I can't wait for the results obtained from the prospect camp this week, sure would have been nice to have had Thomas on hand, he's just the type of team oriented player the Habs look for.
College would be good for him if he was 6'5 190lbs. Fortunately he already weighs 240lbs. He needs to go to a league where he can hit, fight and get used to a longer schedule. Not only that, he'd be going to a top CHL franchise with a top CHL management and coaching team. If he was going to Sherbrooke or something, maybe that would be a different story. But Dale Hunter is great at improving individual work ethic and turning players into pests.
That said, it wouldn't be the end of the world if he ended up being coached by Andy Murray.
