I feel the same way. He's hustling all over the ice like Eller did this past year.

But I will say right now that I'm expecting Dauphin AND Carrier to play much bigger roles on their team....unless Carrier goes all Bourret on me.
With Hudon on his team you have to think the Habs saw a ton of Dauphin. It's not like the Habs were shy about the Q (4/8 picks were from there) so I guess they see something really good in DLR.

tell us who you would have picked at 25.....34............36.........55.......... And we will compare them in 3 or 4 years

I had DLR at 34th so obviously I can't complain.

Happy with the pick he looks to have wheels and likes to play along the boards.

I see a line with eller and collberg in the future. That would be a great line.

Had an odd feeling we were grabbing him.

Have an odd feeling he'll make it full time.

Eller has much better hands. De La Rose is a smart player though, not to mention tough.

Watching the interviews, TT and MB seem absolutely delighted to get him. Huge smiles on their faces when asked about him.

He keeps his game simple and plays hard. huge upside, but worst case he's a phenomenal 3rd liner - the kind you need to win.

Audette was also Dauphin's GM back in Esther-Blondin, so the Habs have the insight on the kid.

I find it a little odd that some are whining about DLR and wanting Dauphin. De La seems like a bigger, faster more physical Dauphin. Maybe not quite as dynamic a compete level but very similar while addressing the size issue.

I think this is a great pick. Looks like he'll be a treat to watch.

Dauphin and DLR are two very different players. DLR brings something the Habs didn't have in the pipeline while Dauphin plays a very similar game to Hudon.

I personally wanted De La Rose, but I expected him to go in the 40+ range.

As someone else posted, he's a jack of all trades. He's a very good skater, a big body that plays with character. He's also a leader and has confidence with the puck. Might lack the finish to be an eventual goal scorer in the NHL(read here 30+ goals per season), but he should become an NHLer.

If you would have paid attention and listened to Bergevin you would know that Montreal did try to move up in the draft. Your comments are joke

De La Rose has more offensive upside, but the rest of their games are in the same mold.

I think Clutterbuck is his bottom tier, but he's got the potential to be much better.

Taking the glass half full perspective:

1. Comparing his numbers with Zibanejad for Draft year and 2 years prior in same league (pro rated to same number of games)
DelaRose: 50-8-8-16 (SEL), 42-6-14-20 (J20), 22-12-11-23 (J18)
Zibanejad: 50-10-8-18 (SEL), 42-6-6-12 (J20), 22-4-4-8 (J18)

2. He had better offensive numbers in his league team on his Draft year and 2 years prior than Burakovsky. Burakovsky had a big offensive year and better numbers 1 year prior.

3. He's more than 6 months younger than Wennberg and Lindholm, and 3 months younger than Burakovsky.

4. In the tapes I watched in International Competitions, his skating and stickhandling were close to the other 3 Swedish top offensive prospects this year. To really distinguish him from the others I would have needed to have a bunch of viewings in their respective leagues... So I had to take the word of the scouting reports.
