I was listening to Martin McGuire on 98.5 and it seems that the Habs had a deal to get the 9th pick from Vancouver and at the last minute they decided to pick Horvat.
This pick would have been done to get Samuel Morin.
Habs wanted to add size and having picked Morin would have allowed them to wait till second round to get McCarron.
Anyone has more information, Audio or anything?
Rumour I'm hearing,is soon as the other team involved read news of a Quebec parade,
They got cold feet....Eck blew the parade all to pieces.
Now there's parade floats goin up for sale on classfieds ads sites like crazy...
