I might help if you go read up on some 1-2 year old articles on the subject.

Lol @ the people whining every year at the american pics.

People never learn.

Go back to where you come from Komi, Higgins, McDo, Maxpac....

Lol! Same thing every year.

This is even more funny considering the habs got an 80 point french canadian winger yesterday. Lol!

Thanks for the post...can't stand those whiners...

Interesting pick to say the least!

Well, I'm kinda happy they draft like this too. It's not because they're unknown to hfboards that they're not great. Timmins is indeed drafting ala Hakan Andersson.

Quailer was rookie of the year and mvp of his team, I believe Pacioretty was rookie of the year the previous year. Quailer is headed to Northeastern next year, it's the first time we'll have a kid in Hockey East since Hainsey and another player we drafted from Northeastern Scott Selig. A US kid from Colorado (where Gillette lives) too bad he didn't opt to go to DU, would be able to see him playing against Fischer/McDonagh/Kishel/Kirsto in '09

We trade our first round pick this year to acquire a high profile, superstar winger from Quebec, but WAH WAH TIMMINS IS SELECTING MORE AMERICANS!

You know, we could have selected Pascal Leclaire over Mike Komisarek. Would you be happy?

We could have selected Jeff Deslauriers instead of Higgins. Another local boy!

How about Steve Bernier over Andrei Kostitsyn? I'm sure theres one dolt around these boards who'd select Bernier over Kostitsyn because of GRIT GRIT GRIT BABY GRIT GRITTTTTTTT.

I'll draft who becomes the best player, not where they are from. We're still the envy of the NHL for our american selections in the 2007 Draft. We could have always selected Esposito and David Perron instead. Would you be happy?

Don't forget that we aren't americans and that once in a while, it would be kind a fun to take a very very very small (like a 3rd rounder) risk with a local kid... or just not the same origin... have you ever heard the saying "don't put all your eggs in the same basket"?

You mean like how he selected Latendresse in 2005?

Oh right, Lats is fat, he doesn't count.

Btw, Mtl with already a deep pool of prospect drafts which wont lose in 3 years if they dont sign them already.

That's one of the reason why they drafting all those NCAA players. They're saving money and time while their numbers of prosects developping keep growing.

Yes more american players gets drafted... that doesn't mean they're better... far from it... there's a ton of american busts. But unlike us, americans tend to draft americans and they're not afraid of it or saying it...

But that's just not true. Timmins said last year that drafting american kids permit us to evaluate them more.

So where they are from means something for him.

Timmins would just need to tell and explain that to the people. 2 players with the same kind of talent, the American will ALWAYS come on top 'cause of the way we can evaluate them. That's all.

As far as the player Qualier is concerned, it might be quite interesting. Some filling to do, and great speed for the size he has. Quite raw, but then that's why a guy like that is a good pick for the American system.

You're reinterpreting all...

It's not only about drafting local players, it's more about drafting mostly americans... it's different...

I actually don't care that much about Quebecers, except if they're good... and I'm also talking about last year draft, not before that...

It is embarrassing sometimes to be a Hab fan and listen to these stupid people complain. Someone will always complain about something. Maybe we should get Rejean Houle back so everyone can complain.
Also these online experts we claiming Justin Jokinen was a 1st rounder but if I am not mistaken 100 picks have gone by and I haven't seen his name.

I guess Poulin and Satari are the only goalies left ??

How about Getslaf or Carter, and Perron has already 15 more goals in the NHl than Pacioretty

Are you complaining about Parcioretty and McDonagh ? You're hard to follow here and I'm most likely confused.

Anyone who says Timmins favors Americans is missing the point.

He favors players he doesn't have to sign inside two years. NCAA players are the only ones left. Right now, Montreal is absolutely stocked full of prospects and we cannot sign them all. Why? Because he drafts well and we want to sign them all!

The best solution is to draft more NCAA players, because they can be in the system for four years before a decision needs to be made.

Look the Q players are getting worse every year. Our 1st pick overall wasnt good enough to eb drafted in the first round. The guy habs shouldve drafted in the first round still isnt drafted after over 100 pick.

If we would stop looking only in prolly the worst league in NA as far as developement goes mmaybe we would know some of the guy Timmins is drafted.

I've seen Kristo once plus video, looked good, loved his speed and smarts. I ha dnever heard of Qualier to be honest, but it looks like he's got some nice upside so we'll see.

I'm pissed that Jamie Arniel went to Boston tho, I'll have to hate him from now on hehe
