But as a Q fan, definatley a great news to see him being gone at 16. That would be awesome news for the Q, totally unexpected by some and even if I like him a lot, unexpected by me as well. 20 would have been the highest I could see him being taken.
What have they done for him? I didn't read anything about it.

While we invited Q players for our own combine, Boston invited him amongst, I guess, other players for some testing of their own and made him visit the city!!!!

And then invited him to a Basketball game having the chance to talk to Raymond Bourque and Cam Neely....I mean.....if it goes as predicted, Boston will pick Deschamps. If there are surprises and suddenly a player Boston liked more but never thought he would be there, then, maybe Habs would have a chance.

At that point, Deschamps is already a Bruin in my mind....

In french, already posted 2 or 3 posts before mine.

Don't get me wrong here....I'm not giving Timmins or Gainey bad intentions, but it's becoming really clear now that Deschamps is headed towards another city than ours. Rarely would they be that openly admirative towards a player. They are right now 'cause they know that they could have been interested, but he won't be there so let talk about him.

They are usually very secretive about players that are really interested and that they really think could be available.

Deschamps is the Bruin's highest ranked forward but I beleive they are also very high on two physical dmen, higher then they are on Deschamps.

Where can I get a live feed that will work outside of Canada?

Here, RDS does not work:
"En raison des droits de certaines images, veuillez noter que la diffusion en direct est accessible au Canada seulement".
If you don't understand french, don't worry, the quality of the french is lower than a fifth grader...

You can also PM me.

Thanks in advance.
Did you try TSN? Try using a proxy if they give you the "blackout" speech.

Man if it continues like this I wonder if we could get Deschamps in the second round.

Forget it. At the very least, while I'm surprised Boston didn't say his name in the 1st round, if he's not gone, they'll surely call his name in the 2nd.

We would need to trade up.
