Kopitar sure would look good in our uniform though.. Goalies rarely get taken first round, nevermind the top 10.. IMO, we could have drafted an organisational need (big body center; Kopitar) and traded up (if we deemed it to be required) to get Price.
I read somewhere that John Muckler said that he wanted Price and was really mad at Gainey for picking him 5th overall. Ottawa had the 9th overall pick.
I really think Gainey should do something about all these completely ficticious rumors coming out of Montreal lately. He should start revoking press credentials for members of the media who are so irresponsible.
I remeber watching "Off The Record" and they had a french reporter on, don't remember his name, but he said Gainey tore him a strip after he came out with an unsubstantiated story. I wonder how often that happens and if he just says **** it one day and revoked their credentials.
It was reported today at 18h on RDS by Renaud Lavoie that Carey Price was rumoured to have been traded to the Blackhawks today. He said that rumour proved to be false and that there was no indication who would have been sent to Montreal. Anybody else here him mention it?
It's the first time I heard about this rumour and I can't find any clue as to where this rumour originated from.
Ask the board moderator.....Montreal - he usually stays on top of Habs info - if any one on this board knows something about this rumour it would most likely be Montreal!
