Talk today has been swirling as far as who is being signed, who has been offered a contract and who is saying goodbye (the latest “confirmed” reports have Francis Boullion walking, Mike Komisarek with an offer and Kovalev, Koivu and Tanguay all taking priority as signing time approaches.
But enough with UFAs and speculation – tomorrow is draft day! So how do the Canadiens play into tomorrow’s activities?
- Our first pick is in the first round, 18th overall.
- We traded away our second round pick, eventually for Tanguay.
- We get two picks in the third round; our own, 79th overall, and Atlanta’s (Schneider deal) 65th overall.
- Rounds four through seven see us pick at 109th, 139th, 169th and 199th respectively.
Enjoy the draft and keep an ear out for continued signings and rumours! I’ll have a post here tomorrow night outlining our picks.
