He was kinda thrown under the bus last night at l'antichambre due to his opinions of the Montreal media concerning P.K's situation.

Brunet has always defended Timmins, saying that he can't be blamed if incompetants trade his picks for terrible assets.

But that is like the Westboro Baptist Church saying you are ignorant.

He's 100% correct. Timmins is a boss.

journalists who criticize Timmins know nothing about hockey. and they'll never admit they were wrong after. Have we ever heard a journalist say they were wrong with Esposito? Still, they criticized Timmins a lot for taking mcdonagh instead of him and taking pac instead of perron

who's laughing now?

Everytime someone brings up Giroux and Carter/Richards/Getzlaf, I like to bring up McDonagh/Halak/Pacioretty.

Well Perron (injury aside) is an awesome pick, but yea we all knows Timmins and his scouts are what kept this team from being bottom every year.

I suppose so. As far as major English media outlets go (TSN, ect...) they've been pretty level-headed and objective on Subban and have also been pretty quick to dismiss Subban rumors. I think the only reason a lot of it comes up is because of how much French media/Montreal fan base have discussed it.

Love the analogy.

Brunet is a very good journalist that everyone here (who speaks French I suppose) should follow.

He's always defended Timmins (he has talked to him often regarding his work which he seems to be a fan of), he's been defending PK, Price, and almost always has a very fair, balanced and down-to-Earth opinion.

I have to admit this is the first year he's actually been tolerable. He isn't criticizing Andrei constantly now either. He's actually giving him credit where it's due.

I don't recall Gaston Therrien on draft day gushing over these two guys over the guys the Habs drafted, the same way I recall Therrien blasting the Gallagher pick even though he didn't know who he was and all because he was drafted over future superstar Jonathan Brunelle.
