Coaching Staff Gets Merked PLUS Draft Preview

Well boys, it was nice knowing you.

In the course of two days, Don Lever, Ron Wilson and Iron Man Doug Jarvis have been shown the door.
This is my last day in the city. Here is my wishlist of who the Canadiens should pick in the first round.
1 - Scott Glennie C 6'1 175 Lbs. Brandon Wheatkings (WHL)
PLUS: Brayden Schenn's partner in crime had 42 assists in only 55 games this season in the Western Hockey League. Is an explosive skater and proven finisher who is able to score the tough goal. He is versatile and has been known to even drop the gloves.
MINUS: His speed might throw off his control and may overskate precise passes. Many scouts are worried that his high speed style of play will cause more injuries.

2 - Chris Kreider. C 6'2 200 Lbs. Andover High School.
PLUS: The one thing this team needs. A BIG FUCKING CENTER.
Scouted as having great hands very good skater.
MINUS: Is a High Schooler, and our other High School First Round Pick two way Defenseman David Fischer has not been heard of since his draft day. (13 points in 31 games with the University of Minnesota) Might not put up as impressive numbers when he makes the transition to Univeristy or the Pros.

3 - Carter Ashton LW 6'2 190 Lbs. Lethbridge Hurricanes (WHL)
PLUS: The son of NHL journeyman Brent Ashton, Carter is a versatile Goal Scorer that many believe will make the jump to the Pros very early in his career.
MINUS: Must still work on his skating but has improved immensely and should be highly sought after at the Draft,

For all of you that think Bob will pull the trigger on a Vinny Lecavalier deal that will see us part ways with our all-world D-Man Andrei Markov, sorry. It ain't gunna happen, but I am very excited to see what does unfold on Friday.

Have a great summer guys.

I will be back on the computer in Mid-August with a review of all the shenanigins that went down this summer.
