Just my opinion, you guys don't have to like it. I don't really care
You're being a meany


You people should try to calm down and not care so much about how the fans react (like last game of the PO). Seriously i'm sure the players can take it and they will get over it, it's half as bad as most Hfboarders makes it sound.

Get over it guys!

and Stephane Leroux of rds ask Timmins about Leblanc and Timmins didnt say anything but had a big smile in his face and Leroux said the feeling he got was Timmins did like Leblanc)
That could be anything... Maybe Leroux has a big snot no he edge of his nose or something and Timmins couldn't help himself.

Imagine if we draft Leblanc and he bust...it would be nice just to stop those bashers who are saying we don't draft enough Quebec born players. I don't want to see our 1st round pick bust though...

It's really not going to change ANYTHING. The ****ers who could potentially boo if we don't pick Leblanc don't actually give a **** whether there were better players available or not. They also don't know **** about hockey and especially prospects, therefore they will keep booing just for the kick of it until the Nords are back anyways..

I work with people who know their stuff and even then, they want quebecois on draft day. At least, I would have a great argument!

They would probably turn it around and claim it was because he did not play in the LHJMQ.

As for Matt Duchene ... can we trade up for him please !

It sucks, but weather you guys want to admit it or not..you know it's going to happen.

I hope that Bob, Trevor and crew let their potential picks know that this is likely to happen, and to not take it personally.

That has to be such a crappy feeling..

And I know this is going to sound harsh, but if our pick gets booed out of the building, I hope Montreal never gets another entry draft again.
matthew stafford was the first overall pick in the nfl draft and he got booed loudly by the lions fans.......so i dont really care if fans boo the players or not. Its upon the player to prove the fans wrong. This stuff does not just happen in montreal though.

I think Stafford was a wise choice but the lions fans have a case since their only star player they drafted with their 1st round pick has been Calvin Johnson.

yeah that's true but my point was booing doesnt just happen in montreal though. Detroit has way more of a case than habs fans to boo in the draft and if someone boos the player we draft, he should get his mouth smacked. Its only fair

Won't change anything for some people. Let's take Michel Villeneuve for example. He already said that surely Timmins is interested in Leblanc 'cause he's playing in the US, so already bashing the org. for not going in the Q.

Then, he goes on by saying that he hopes that we're not going to draft a small talented guy since we already have enough of those.

So for Villeneuve, unless you pick a Québecois pure laine, from the Q, who's big on top of that, Villeneuve's picks for this year draft would be: 1st round: Jordan Caron or Simon Després, 3rd round: Philippe Paradis and Gabriel Lemieux, 4th round: David Gilbert, 5th round: David Savard or Steven Anthony, 6th round: Mathieu Populus, 7th round: Gabriel O'Connor.

Everything else but that isn't good enough.... I could have added that the last name needs to sound french, but there just isn't big Q guys enough this year.

I really don't see how that's bashing the org. If anything, Villeneuve makes a point that might help Leblanc being drafted. The media has enough problems as it is... Let's not make up stuff to bash them further.

Let's not get carried away.

The NFL draft is WAY different than the NHL draft. The players you draft in the first round are most likely stepping into the starting lineup within the next few years and in most cases, they fill an IMMEDIATE need.

In the NHL draft, you're drafting players that will most likely make the team in 3-4 years. And there are 3 real positions you're drafting from, not about 10+ positions that each fill a very different assignment and have very different skill sets.

But I could understand that players get booed at both drafts if some people have a very different approach to who should get selected. But that's if the criticism is fair. The fans would be booing because the guy isn't from 'here', which makes this completely ********. Not because they think there's a better player or a better fit, but because of his name and where he was born and raised.

yup, exactly. You can also add that most of the "fans" that will be booing here wont have a clue on who the habs will have drafted. Even if hes a quebecois, theyll just cheer for the name but wont know a thing about the player. And like you said, the player drafted in the nhl is a couple years away from playing in the league, all of this just makes it even more stupid to boo players drafted. Damn villeneuve and his henchmen

I agree 100%. Idiots who boo for the sake of booing aren't really fans of the team.

Sorry, don't understand. Villeneuve used his condescending tone to respond to Stéphane Leroux who had informed him that Timmins might be interested in Leblanc. To which Villeneuve responded "Well surely he's interested, the player is in the US...." As if getting Leblanc wouldn't count, 'cause he's not in the Q. I know, I was there, I listened to the show and trust me, he hates Timmins and will never say anything great about him so I don't understand your " making a point in order to be drafted".

He doesn't bring a package that enticing to me.

I'd rather take a late flier on Labrie than take Gélinas with a mid-round pick.

Fair enough. That said, I don't want anymore d-men in this draft. Only centres and wingers.

**** the BPA if he's a d-man (except if the talent difference is huge of course), we've done it too often in the last few years.

if we indeed take a Quebec born player, for me it has to be Leblanc or Caron
