I am sure if you email Tony (Tony@team 990.com), he'll ask some of your questions to God Trevor.

He's on now.

Recap:

- Patience/development with the kids drafted since '03 was key. Kudos to Gainey to hanging on for the picks.

- '03 draft: Never had any doubts about A. Kostitsyn even though many doubted. Took time and patience. Andrei had to adjust to this type of hockey over here. He has had a breakout year, hopefully the best is yet to come.

- Always luck involved...lucky enough that we were watching A.Kosty at the 2005 WJC and we noticed Sergei. We loved his NA style/willigness to get involved and take a hit. Showing that at the NHL level. Big credit to Hunters for developping him.

- What might have hurt Latendresse was he was good enough to be a pro at 19, but too big and strong for junior, every time he would hit a player there he'd be in the box. Him playing in Hamilton at 19 would have probably been the best thing for him but not possible at the time. Gui's young, best is yet to come, we and he knows what he needs to work on this summer.

- At what point were you certain Carey was going to be your pick? It was when Foster Gillett picked the ball that gave us the 5th pick! There were 4 players the entire NHL had ahead of him. We were pretty sure those other guys would go 1-2-3-4 and they did. The question was, do we take a potential franchise goalie? Kudos to Mister Gainey for trusting his scouts and their opinions and going with the BPA. Wouldn't disclose where he had Price on the list.

- Carey can handle the pressure...but let him be himself. He's not anybody else. He's the future and really believe he has a great career ahead of him.

- Very important the Black aces get a ''first hand exposure'' what it takes to play here and at this time of the year.

- McDonagh update: He had a heck of a year. One of their top D's in Wisconsin, he'll be back there next year. We expect him to be a dominant player in the NCAA. He's a horse.

- Pacioretty update: Probably at a NHL level physically, hasn't played at a high level of hockey for too long. He's close. Late birthday, if he was a CHLer he would be a pro next season. We'll see what happens this summer and what HE wants to do. Ready for this level physically. Come a long way in a short among of time.

- Conboy update: Opening up a LOT of eyes. Tough guy who can play the game. 1st liner in Omaha. No one wants to mess with him. Going to Michigan state next year. Type of player we don't have elsewhere. Keeping a close eye on him.

-Brunnstrom: As good as everyone says he is? No one knows until he comes to the NHL. Has potential, can't say he will be a top 6 forward for sure. Has upside, only been in the SEL for one season. Lots of potential. High end prospect, we are definitely pursuing him, along with other teams.

- Position in mind for '08 draft? Can't answer that, BPA! At some point in the draft, we'd like to re-stock the goalie situation since the cupboard is a bit bare with Price and Halak here.

- Emelin: Any news? Met with him in Kazan when he was at the U-18. He's a big boy, not tall but thick. Has another year left in Kazan, difficult to get him out of it. Most players don't want to rock the boat. I planted it in his head and his agent's head to not sign anymore contracts over there, lol.

Wrote down on the fly:

McDonagh is staying in Wisconsin next year, Pacioretty, it will depend on what he wants

Brunnstrom: he has potential, he does have upside, and he only played in the swedish elite league for one year, he is definitely a high-end prospect.

He wants to re-stock the goaltenders and still look for the BPA.

He doubts that Yemelin will come next year, but he told his agent and him to not sign anymore contracts in Russia to allow him to come over here.

Also just said they need to refill the cupboard of goalies, since both young goaltenders are up with the big club.

I didn't listen from the beginning but here's a quick recap:

- They discussed how he found out about SKost
(They were scouting AKost and noticed SKost and his north-american style of play)
- When was he sure Price would be his pick
(I don't quite recall what he said)
- Did it hurt Latendresse to not play with the Bulldogs
(Timmins said it was a tough choice to make)
- How important it is for the Bulldogs to be around the team now
(Not very pertinent answer)
- Can Maxpac do the same jump Lats did
(Maybe, maybe not)
- What does Timmins think of McDonagh
(Solid d-man, people will see him at the summer development camp)
- Timmins would like a goalie in middle of the draft since the two youngsters are now with the big club.
- Emelin has one more year on his contract in Kazan

They are going to draft the best possible player this season (2008 draft) and said that he wants to re-stock the goaltenders in the system because both Price and Halak are in Montreal and they need more depth.

If they take a goalie in the 1st round, people are going to laugh!

Regarding Brunnstrom, can he be signed as Free Agent or has to go through the draft ? Is he really good or another player like Dopita ?

And I'll bet on Jake Allen in order to have a closer look since he'll play in Verdun next year. Again, if we end up with Allen and/or Adam, chances are Verdun will see me more than my wife will....

I believe with the kind of season Pickard had and is still having in the playoffs, he'll end up a 1st or beginning of a 2nd rounder. I really doubt we will use a 1st rounder again on a goalie.....And Pickard will be gone when it will be time to speak with our 2nd pick. Chances are Allen will be there at our 2nd pick, better would be to use a 3rd for Allen. If not, since we don't have a 5th and 6th, we should use our 3rd or our 4th on a goalie.

I guess people were right about that.

I've wanted to watch this guy play for a while. Seems like a lot of people like him and hate him for the right reasons. I know his coach said a lot of positives about him.
