The commentator was purely speculating and doing so very poorly it would seem.
Well if you would have listened to Stephane Leroux or Martin McGuire comments during the draft, he did some comments about the Habs were holding their heads when the NJD traded their eight pick for Schneider.
Seems that the Habs were going to try to get Morin at 8th (but it could have been Horvat also).

There is also this interview with MB on RDS, where it was clear that he was interested: his body language was clear when the question was asked to him.
Also this audio with Martin McGuire and Samuel Morin:
Listen at 30 seconds.

When a lot of people from different sources hint at the same thing, it may very well be the case. Some sources are even from other towns...
Leroux knowledge about LHJMQ is really good and McGuire is following the Habs like no other.

One thing for sure: MB tried to move up in the first round many times.
