The Habs have enough scoring talent that is questionable to get it done in tight checking. The last thing they need is another soft "goal" scorer who may not even survive in the NHL because he doesn't have any real fire to his game. The draft is judged in 5 years after for a reason. Remember when Perron was better than Pacioretty?
Finally, no one cares what league they are from. Mantha being from the Q has nothing to do with anything.
Well said, exactly my thoughts!!
