    Yea that is really weird, any chance they asked him and he said no for some reason?

    Any ideas for line combinations for these players?

    Yup. He was so impressive at the under 18s.

    I'm surprised Mark Katic isn't there as well, and Couture.

    They must have wanted an equal number of 'checking line' type players as 'scoring line' players. If they were picking for top talent, no question Stamkos and Couture would replace some of those players named.

    They were obvioulsy building a versatile team, rather than a collection of the best offensive weapons.

    Won't these dates be conflicting with NHL rookie and training camps?

    I'm surprised that the roster has so many '07's on it, especially among the forwards. From the 23 forwards/defense only 5 are from the '06 draft.

    Claude Giroux and Ty Wishart :handclap::handclap:

    The Habs should've take the offensive Wizard Claude Giroux last year when they had the chance instead of the enigma David Fischer... :help:

    You're right, Fischer is an enigma...to you. Your viewing sample of Fischer is as small as your viewing sample of Giroux is large. Besides, we're talking about two differant players who play two very differant positions from two very differant hockey playing and developing backgrounds.

    No because he is an offensive Wizard and will be a star in the NHL.

    Can you say the same about Fischer being a future star in his position ?! He looks more like a suspect than a prospect at this moment. Don't think that your smart by saying this comment.
    I know that Giroux is not a "Québecois" :shakehead

    Giroux is the best Player in the LHJMQ at this moment and I've watch him play over 15 times this year in Gatineau. He will win the scoring title next year, you can mark my words. This guy is all about heart and Character. He never takes a shift off. Add theses attributes to his elite set of skills and you got an offensive dynamo like Claude Giroux. He was my pick last year for the Habs and still think the Habs made a big mistake by not taking him.

    He was picked to be in Team Canada before players like Francois Bouchard, Mathieu Perreault and James Sheppard (from the LHJMQ also) who are very good players too. It tells you alot about how good Claude Giroux is. Shame that the Habs pass on him. :shakehead

    Yeah kind of shocked, but Stamkos will be at the U18's now in August and will have a chance to rip it up there. If lights it up early next season he gets an invite in December to the WJC camp.

    I am very surprised guys like Sheppard, White, Holzapfel, Maxwell, Matthias, MacLean, Bouchard, Perrault, etc. did not get named.

    Lucic is a waste, so are Wishart and Ellerbey. Tyrell is good, but I would have taken some of the other guys ahead of him.
