This guy can't possibly be the BPA.. I don't really like that change of philosophy.

Say Hayden turns out to be a fine player. Even if he's not traded we could trade him for any proven goon in the league then.

This

People have been complaining that the Habs need to get bigger and tougher and now that they do people are still complaining

Go figure

Btw i think they could have waited to pick crisp but McCarron , Fucale De La Rose and , and Lehkonen are good picks imho. This is the first questionable one

Gotta have faith in the new management. They're certainly making an impression this year. The org is changing it's complexion.

Wow......

"but he’s at his best when he’s in the slot. Tough to move, causes disruptions and can put the puck in the back of the net. I just hope his skating improves.” - Ryan Yessie

Quotable: “He was passed over last year but gets a free pass for a second look. He has size and work ethic.” - Mark Edwards"

Pissing and moaning about a guy who is very comfortable in the slot and is tough to move with size and a great work ethic.

Is this real life?

+/- means absolutely nothing.

I like how everyone ignores the fact that he went undrafted last season because he missed almost the entire season.

People on this site are downright embarrassing.

We've been draftin BPA for a decade and no real progress, even if our drafting has been good. We have a ton of smaller players with skill in our ranks and in the minors. Why not add something we don't already have instead of "duplicate" players? It's not like they are throwing in the towel, they are trying to fill some gaps.

I know he likes to fight, but he has hands. You guys don't even know him and have never seen him play. How can you say he is not good ? He scored 22 goals in Erie ffs. That in itself is a feat.

We have done BPA in the middle/lower rounds for the past decade and we have not gotten anywhere close to winning a Cup.

The Ottawa DMen had it too easy with our smaller forwards.

Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result IS insanity. Glad to see a new thought process in Montreal.

Something tells me this is a Bergevin pick. Crisp was out one year and that may have delayed his development. MB was probably high on him.

I don't like this pick at all, I'm going to give him them some slack on McCarron and Fucale (Which wouldn't of been my pick) but I can't see or find a silver linning... this is just a wasted pick and would of been available more further in the draft.

Any of these guy would of been much better pick... also some Dman were still available...

75.LW Pavel Buchnevich
80.LW Anthony Duclair
84.C James Lodge
83 C Bogdan Yakimov
73.C Ryan Kujawinski
74. C John Hayden

This pick was absolutely terrible, there should be no defending it.

Crisp, Connor – LC – Erie Otters (OHL) – 6’4” – 225
Connor was selected in the 2nd round of the 2010 OHL Priority Selection Draft by the Erie Otters out
of the York-Simcoe Express Minor Midget Program. Connor made the Otters as a 16 year old and
scored 5 goals in his rookie season. Connor was primed to enter the 2012 NHL Draft but a shoulder
injury kept him out of all but six games
last year, one of which he spent playing goalie for Erie after
they went into a game in Niagara with only one netminder. That one goaltender was promptly run by
Alex Friesen during his first shift
, causing injury, which saw Connor play goal for the entire game,
minus the first few seconds. This was a once in a lifetime experience and Connor actually made 30+
saves in this game.
Entering the 2012-2013 season, Connor was healthy and ready to show what he’s
capable of in hopes of being a re-entry selection at the NHL Draft.

Connor did a good job posting a 20+ goal season on the fourth lowest scoring team in the OHL.
Connor played top power play minutes for the Otters and can consistently be found in the crease area.
He battles extremely hard out front making life difficult for goaltenders and defenders due to his huge
frame. He has pretty good hands in the goal area and finishes many of his goals using his frame and
his hands to put the puck in the back of the net. He also displays good physicality. He finishes his
checks regularly and isn’t afraid to drop the gloves. He hit double digits for fights this past season
and took on some of the better fighters in the league. Connor’s ability to read plays and make quick
decisions seems to go underrated because of his size and physicality but he regularly makes smart
plays with the puck, but will have the occasional miscue. He contributed defensively, and while he
wasn’t exceptional in this area of the game, he was usually reliable.

Connor has a few things working against him. Of course, the loss of most of a whole year of
development with a shoulder injury does hurt him. The second is his skating ability. Connor has a
huge frame and has the strength that will get him through junior, and should even help him at the pro
level, but his skating is simply not fast enough. He doesn’t have very good quickness, he looks heavy
on his feet, and this is an area that may scare off some teams. It will take a great deal of work for him
to get his skating up to average. It likely will never be an asset, but this is a major area of
improvement for Connor. He has the high end upside of a low end top six power forward. He plays
the game he would need to in order to be effective in that role. He knows how to use his size and has
the ability to score some goals. This, however, is only a reality if his skating improves.

Quotable: “Connor looked a lot more comfortable this season. He’s shown with
or without goalie pads he’s willing to get in front of some shots, but he’s at his
best when he’s in the slot. Tough to move, causes disruptions and can put the
puck in the back of the net. I just hope his skating improves.” - Ryan Yessie

Quotable: “He was passed over last year but gets a free pass for a second look.
He has size and work ethic.” - Mark Edwards
I like the kid already.

We have also had great success with middle lower round picks. I prefer a 5'8'' NHLer to a 6'3'' AHLer enforcer any day of the week.

Now perhaps this guy is special and great, I hope theres a good reason they drafted him there... I just have a really hard time believing this guy is the best we could get at this point in the draft.

Someone should sticky this thread and if Crisp becomes the next Shaw or Bickell we should remind everyone that Timmins and his staff do this 8-10 hours a day, 5-6 days a week, 45-47 weeks a year. They don't scan the scouting reports between snacks of poutine & hotdogs & joining dating sites like some of the experts on this site.
