Anyone remember who the Habs invited to their combine last year?
Were guys like Bozon and Thrower there?

It's impossible to know who they hoped would fall more and missed on and who they brought in for a closer look but didn't like, except for the guys they considered for #3, but i don't see a lot of present Habs on that list.

Wonder how interested they are in some of those (now) overagers like Trainor, Marcoux, Fournier...

It's pretty much a combine to investigate the local talent to ensure they don't "miss" out on the next francophone star. Didn't really work in the case of Giroux. It ends up mostly being posturing for the media in the city with an agenda.

Is the Fournier, Stefan Fournier from the Moosehead and is Belzile the Alex Belzile that finished the season with the dogs?

Belzile probably, but Fournier must have been Dillon Fournier who was picked 48th last year.

It was Alex Belzile that finished the season with the Bulldogs and Dillon Fournier, Stefan's brother, that was drafted 2nd round in Chicago.

Mike McCarron, Ryan Hartman and John Hayden are coming to our combine. As well as Evan Cowley (never heard of him, looks like he's about to be a USHL goalie),

Those are some names I like. Hartman isn't ideal as a first rounder, but I'll take him, type of player you can win with. Hayden was a WTK mock pick, so obviously, I like that. McCarron, well, if he has the upside to be a scorer, then why not?

3 names I like to see. Always glad to hear about our mini-combine, since it means that draft day is right around the corner.

Favorite day of the year for any draft junkie.

Money and spotlight in QC, where he can show what he has in a great organization. It was the Remps or nothing here, was drafted by Halifax and didn't even want to go before Pat Roy got him and convinced him to come.

Real glad to see those 3 going, not that it means anything, but they want to confirm or infirm things about them, which is good. Damn I want McCarron and Hayden in a Habs jersey...

Great news! If we pick 2 very skilled guys with 25th and 34th, we have to take a chance with one of them (Hayden/McCarron). There's a high risk of bust but if they work, it's gonna pay big time. That kind of guy is not easy to find and sometimes, you have to gamble on draft day. I'm against drafting for SIZE SIZE SiZE but I think that we have to leave NJ with one of Hayden, McCarron or Hill. With 3 2nd pick, it's the year to take that kind of risk. Other people could say the opposite like it's a great opportunity to pick 4 skilled guy in round 1 and 2 but I prefer to have 1/4 bust like this year than 1/2 for regular year (1X1st and 1X2nd).

Same here. Clear names for our first 2nd round picks. I would have hope that Hayden would stick around till the 3rd but I guess it won't happen...

It is kind of comforting that Timmins sees enough in these players to bring them at the combine to further evaluate them. That's good news indeed.

It never used to be that much covered. IIRC last year was the first time the media attended, mostly because of the drama around the team from the winter and who would get picked #3.

Was Giroux even invited to the Habs mini-combine? Grant?

This. Hartman's been my guy for a few months. Really love what he brings to the table and very happy that Timmins has at least a little interest. Very realistic pick for us.
