56. RW - Danny Kritso :(

86. RW- Steve Quailer :o

116. G - Jason Missiaen :D

138. F- Maxim Trunev :D

206. F -Patrick johnson :mellow:

Personal opinion of them are by faces.

Missiaen, the tallest player ever to be drafted by the Habs. “But the problem was that my mom insisted that I wear the most protection possible and that’s how I became a goalie.”

Does this team have something against players over 6" it seems we are forever drafting small hockey players. They did'nt learn much from the play offs last year against Philly.We needed size and grit down the middle ended up drafting a guy 5"9'' WOW. Where's the logic?

Size wasn't our problem in the playoffs.

That guy seam hillarious, http://www.madison.com/wsj/home/sports/badgersHockey/272545

Well another small center but he is just a 7th i guess.

I like him already!

Haha! Ya! Maybe he'll become our own little version of Jarkko Ruutu.

"That's what I like about my game," he said. "I'm small and people don't think I can do much, which I love to prove them wrong."

Nice! Kid's got spunk at least.

You clearly don't know much about some of the players in our system.

Ryan White (6'0", 212 lb)

Kyle Chipchura (6'2", 205 lb)

Maxim Lapierre (6'2", 196 lb)

Guillaume Latendresse (6'2", 229 lb)

And that's just off of the top of my head.

Not to mention:

Andrei Kostitsyn (6'0", 201 lbs.)

Maxim Lapierre (6'2", 200 lbs.)

Gregory Stewart (6'2", 200 lbs.)

Pavel Valentenko (6'2", 218 lbs.)

Ryan O'Byrne (6'6", 228 lbs.)

:)

better a guy whos 5'9 and has potential to make it to the nhl then a 6'3 guy who will be a career ahl player

Just to get in on the fun of getting on this guy,

since when does this years draft have anything to do with what we do in the playoffs this year, the next year the year after etc.

Let's see if they can actually develop these guys properly or will they trade them away only to see them excel elsewhere as usual.

dude, they are going to play in the NCAA's first, they have 4 years of eligibility before we even begin to coavh them. here are some former NCAA players in the NHL.

Drury

STlouis

Higgins

Komisarek

Cole(kills us)

Adam Oates played ncaa,

Relax, and give the kids time, there are excellent coaches in the NCAA, the kids will develop
