I see the angle the Flames are going for. I hope it works. The three players above had no real chance of becoming impact NHL players. This kid could be a franchise center. There's a legitimate reason to get excited about it.

And yep, he's done an awful job in Calgary... Baertschi is a bust, Gaudreau has no upside, Wotherspoon and Granlund will be lucky to play in the AHL, and Brossoit looks like Cloutier Jr. Bourque for Cammalleri was a steal for the Habs, and both Tanguay and Glencross' contracts will clearly handcuff this team for years to come.
Bourque trade a steal for who???

Do you know what the Oilers need.

I do, but I think I understand their pick just the same.

The value of a 40 goal scorer is enormous.

He was being sarcastic. I wouldn't really call it a steal for the Flames, but they likely made out a bit better than the Habs.

My favorite was when Buffalo traded up, and (I think it was Pierre) literally bellowed "COULD THEY BE DRAFTING A GOALIE?!!?!"

I absolutely LOVED when McKenzie put McGuire in his place after McGuire was "What the heck is Calgary doing? That is a horrible trade. Blah blah blah is still available. I can't believe they're not addressing organizational needs"

and then McKenzie basically shuts him up after all his crying and says "I'll tell you exactly what Calgary did and why it was a good move"

and 10 seconds later McGuire was playing Calgary's fiddle like he does Parise, Jordan Staal or some other obscure player/team/coach he has a hard on for.

That's why I RESPECT McKenzie and not McGuire despite what he knows.

Also, why in the hell does McGuire laugh at everything he says like it's some club room, inside joke, only the cool kids know?

I like how when button had the Leafs picking Forsberg in their mock, Pierre made it known he thought Rielly was going there. Only pundit to nail that pick.

Do you have selective memory????

Pierre said that Burke/Nonis told him before the draft that they would take Reilly at #5 if he was there. He collects information such as this from numerous GM's just prior to the draft with a promise to only divulge the pick seconds before it is announced.

Can't win with the NHL fans..

Too much of a cookie cutout : 'We need more personality'
Person has a good personality : 'I hate this guy'
Just a note that you may already be aware of but the English term for residents of Canada is Canadians. Canadiens is the french term and the name of the Montreal hockey team.
