    found the draft video

    sorta cool
    would be awesome to know the names and hear the thoughts about specific players but i see why they did not really go there

    not a fan of the "character" stuff though

    It still feel to me like they are improvising out there. Timmins has been doing it for 14 years in the same organization, it seems like the process should well tuned by now, and yet it still felt somewhat ad hoc and disorganized.

    There is a part where they are debating on how to interpret the physical evaluation tests and how to apply it to the evaluation of a player, and they take turn giving their own opinion on how to balance this. I feel that their evaluation methodology should have been pretty much set at this point, not debated on the fly 3 days before the draft. Maybe it's just me.

    I agree 100%. Even the way they finally drafted a bunch of centres -- as if they suddenly discovered the position's value -- irks me.

    They throw crap to the wall. They have no idea what they’re doing.

    To be fair, they've only drafted 3 wingers in the last 4 drafts. http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/draft/t...r00006929.html

    In those drafts, they drafted:

    3 wingers
    1 goalie
    13 centers
    12 defensemen

    Likely the sad truth.

    and even some further down like Hudon were actually drafted as centres but converted to the wing

    i would like to hope that was just a re hash

    but they probably do not deserve the benefit of doubt

    The Habs have signed RFA Joel Armia to a one-year, $1.85 million deal.

    I do not think Danault may be on the Habs long term list with how long it is taking to sign him. We have lots a C coming up and he may be seeing the exit door in a year or two.

    He is probably looking at 4-5 years and we are resisting

    I hear nothing but good things about Peca and with the kids coming up soon his services may not be needed. We have made some pretty solid moves in the past while and now he may be over rating his worth here.
