Yes, I'm kidding people.
I recall Hickey reporting pre-draft Gainey absolutely wanted a RDman in the system, Gauthier apparently saw Fisher in Minny and recommended him. Habs also drafted a RDman with their second of 2nd round picks from the Q that draft, would’ve been nice if they at least took Petry instead...For me it's Giroux. Local guy, we wanted him, we had him in a tie with Fischer, we let the scout from Minny screamed louder than the one from Quebec, one became a bust and the other a superstar. Even the Flyers were so surprised we passed on him that Clarke didn't even knew his name.
Not true at all.
The Flyers wanted Bobby Sanguinetti, he was their guy. The Rangers picked him right before them at 21, and the Flyers were pissed. So they "settled" on the Gatineau guy, the guy Clarke that didn't care at all for & wasn't worth remembering his name for.
I'm sometimes hesitant to heap on praise to certain people when they lucked out more than anything else.

Back when everyone whined that we were too goalie reliant?Remember when we used to get goaltending like this? Good times.
