Canadiens 5th pick a Shocker

  • The Canadiens surprised everyone today by selecting goaltender Carey Price at #5.

    The first goalie to go in the draft, who himself said he did not expect to go that high.

    The pick was criticized early by the media, considering many think the Canadiens have many other holes to fill before a goalie.

    Personally, I agree. I expected the habs would make a move for a strong large center or power forward.

    However, I have faith in Bob Gainey and crew’s decision making abilities. He has yet to let us down, and who knows, maybe this kid will develop into a strong netminder.

    Bob Gainey’s pick shocked the Montreal Canadiens fan base without a doubt. But I’m sure the one person that was shocked the most of all was none other than Jose Theodore. Being a restricted free agent means that he won’t be going anywhere this year, yet the temptation might be there next season.
