We keep hearing how development is just as big as drafting. Well if it could happen to Timmins and Co, it could happen to everybody else.
Not to mention that Gilbert Brule is also not from Quebec but born in Edmonton. But why should people let such facts get in the way. He has a French name therefore he is a local boy.

Nowhere was it said (in this thread) that he should have been or not been drafted because of his name.
If you want to use that argument take a look at our newest 'French Canadian' coach.

While I'm on the Leblanc bandwagon, I really don't think he's going to be around after 17 teams have made their picks.

Never, never take the guy with the star linemates

Too hard to tell who will keep producing without the others. It is easy to look good when the defence is keying on a different forward.

Yeah, he might be a steal for a team looking for a Chris Higgins type pick in the mid-late teens. We already have our Chris Higgins, and many more in that mold... It's time to swing for the fences, and unfortunately a guy with less talent than our late second round pick last year isn't a home-run type swing.

It is actually all about the 17 GM that pick before us... By the 18th pick, he will be gone... Unless we do something to move up, but to what spot? And for how much?

McKenzie is trying to say that LeBlanc should go top 12-14, and not #17 (or Habs' #18).

McKenzie should also have added that Schenn will be a steal if he is still available at #7!! (Leafs' #7).


IMO, Schenn will be, should be picked up #4 or #5.

Huh? Where did I say that I liked him because he was local?

Don't get me started on Paquette. Clearly not a Timmins kinda pick. Despite the picks of Latendresse, Chipchura and White, Timmins BPA notion is based on 2 things. If he hesitates between 2 players, he'll go with a d-man. And he will always go with the guy that has the fastest feet and better agility (not inventing things, he told me that in a past dev. camp). So Timmins pick will always have great agility. Clearly a guy like Ryan White was supposed to go much earlier and feel 'cause of his skating. At the time we pick, Timmins thought that he was clearly the BPA. Might have been the same for him in 2004 for Chip and same for Lats. But while I wanted Paquette at one point, I totally didn't expect him. It does suck 'cause while we might (i say might depending on how Kristo develops offensively) have tons of Kristo's in our pool, we do not have our own Chris Neil yet. We'll see what Conboy will do in the near future. But I really believe that despite his deficiencies, Paquette will make an NHL lineup real soon. It will be a fun year in Quebec city....with Delmas in net, they could go very far.

Everything I heard pointed to the Habs taking Deschamps, I got a good source that knows Timmins well and he told me that Timmins was very high on Deschamps and Kristo (and McDonagh in '07)

Well, now we know Montreal won't be able to draft him. Anyway, if LeCavalier is comming to Montreal, this first pick will be owned by TB.

I disagree. Both Kane and Gagner are turning out to be great picks. Schenn and Glennie have both done fine when the other is out of the lineup. Boedker was playing on a dominant Kitchener team, but I'm sure Phoenix doesn't regret picking him.

Of course, quality of teammates is a factor. But it should be balanced along with quality of competition, time on ice, time on the PP... it's just one of many considerations.

Tell you what. Give me a list of your top 2 propects from each round that the Habs will have a realistic shot at getting.

Maybe we could trade up to draft Kulikov or LeBlanc?

I think it would be hard to trade up to get Kulikov, who I'm guessing goes top 10 or so. Leblanc, I'd be surprised if he went in the top 15, so perhaps they could something like they did with the Higgins pick when we moved up from 15th to 14th to get him. So hard to say how it will shake out as opinions all over all the place on this draft class, plus there's always a surprise pick or two usually, so we might get lucky and have Timmins pick fall to him again like they did in '07 with McDonagh.

I disagree. Defensemen of his size, that can skate do not grow on trees. Imagine if he had a Defense coach......

Komisarek was as inconsistant, or even worse at that stage of his career. Now... teams will probably pay him $5 to $6 Million.

Throwing away prospects is the best way to become the Islanders or the Leafs.

One of them is getting paid big bucks to make those decisions. I'll let you guess which one.

Can a mod change the title? It really bugs me. He only said he was a sleeper pick in the middle of the first round, not the steal of the draft...
