Habs Draft Review, Jets, Trades, Rumors and More

Alex Galchenyuk - 2012 NHL Entry Draft - Round One
Happy lunch time Hab fans!

Quite a weekend in the hockey world, wasn't it?

We saw goalies move, brothers reunited and the Leafs finally trade Luke Schenn.

For the Habs, they were quiet on the trade front, but certainly had what looked to be an exceedingly promising draft haul.

In picking three players that were, according to some, destined for the first round, it is understandable that Trevor Timmins was all smiles.

Our Fred Poulin offers an excellent overview of the draft for the Canadiens, so go check that out.

Also, tell us, in your opinion, what was the biggest story line from the draft weekend?

Biggest story?, on a sidenote, it is so nice to see TSN broadcasts with no McGuire, you tend to forget till he returns with his annoying and whining comments!

I see 4 potential 1st round picks nabbed by Timmins, how were they all available, especially Collberg (steal of draft easily!)??

Overall, the Habs could not have done any better, now will see how they develop over next few years.
Will Galchenyuk play a couple regular season games before going back to Sarnia?

What are the Oilers thinking, taking a goon at 32nd, when highly skilled players (Aberg/Bystrom/Finn/Collberg) are still available? Going for 4th #1 in a row, HaHa?

I just hope that these picks can pan out. A good draft is if 1 or 2 guys work out well.....we potentially hav a good 3-4 who can be impact guys.

Heard alot about COllberg but I am interested to see how Thrower turns out? We may have the next Bieksa or Wisniewski on our hands here.
