-61. Must be good.
And a RD, our biggest position of need!
Don't know him....heard of him though
Decent pick at this point in the draft. We'll have to see how he does on a team that actually knows what hockey is.
Did I read -61 right?
Only -109 in the last three seasons.
It can't be that hard to teach RHD to play with leftie sticks right? Gitturdun
Never draft based on our organizational need. Thats a recipe for disaster. The way I see it, many of these players will be playing left and right regardless. That is an impressive D haul for the Habs at this point.
Yes, -110 in the WHL so far, playing with a really bad team tho.
I have no problem with this pick. It's the Walford one I don't care for since he could have been taken later and the Habs could have taken some offence.
If any of you saw Kootenay play, you would understand the -61... he has to get out of that team.
Congrats to you guys on getting Fleury, as a season ticket holder of the Kootenay Ice, I was praying Edmonton would take him with one of our two 3rd round picks and I'm jealous on Montreal for getting him. I've watched most of his games for Kootenay, our captain this year on a very bad team, he's going to be fun to watch in the NHL (and although I'm very biased of course, I think he will have a very good shot to make the NHL).
Even as a 16 year old I saw much bigger players go to hit him and bounce off of him leave his standing and them lying on the ice. He likes to go for the big hit and will occasionally get out of position as a result but overall a talented player. Don't let his plus/minus influence you...you got a keeper.
Good for us! Thanks for the report!
Thanks for the words!
As a season ticket hold I really hope Kootenay is better for you next year
Any weakness to his game?
right handed D
Because drafting based on needs is a mistake.
You go BPA.
But look at that trash D core in Kootenay. He is the only semi-decent D there. He probably got a boatload of icetime and that probably why his +/- was so bad.
I hate this argument. Then why did we draft poehling? He is a center, we drafted him for needs.
I doubt Poehling was BPA
By the time these RD are ready in 4-5 years (if ever) Petry is gone and Weber is in his mid 30s.
This isn't the NFL where the guy is stepping into your lineup tomorrow.
The guys are not stepping in next year. Looking 5-6 years down the road, our RD might well be a position of need.
Project. Who knows?
Cale Fleury is the hockey name so far, the others sound like they are made up.
Separate names with a comma.
