The Montreal Canadiens were a very intriguing team entering the NHL Draft this year, as they had several options available to them thanks to cap space, dollars and several picks in the top three rounds. With Marc Bergevin spearheading his second draft as general manager, there was plenty of interest with his phone was ringing so much on Saturday, he joked he already needed to charge it three times by the afternoon. Insisting the Habs would be satisfied if they left with all their picks, they did so with the exception of their final seventh round pick, dealing it to Florida for a 2014 pick. And by the reaction of the Canadiens draft table, which even displayed a few subtle smiles and fist pumps at some points, they were happy with their day. While the temptation to trade up in the Draft was there, it didnt work out. "The price to pay was high, we were willing to do that, but the team decided to take the pick," said Bergevin. Much talk prior to the Draft was the Habs interest to select a goaltender, and they landed a hometown boy and the highest ranked netminder in Zachary Fucale. "The timing was right to jump on a goalie of that caliber," noted Bergevin. "I was happy; surprised that he was still there." Some other teams were in the trade market, but while Bergevin was aware of some familiar Blackhawks, it wasnt the right time. "They piqued my attention, because I know those players," commented the GM. "Internally we discussed it, but we felt it was not the right time." Clearly, the Habs were looking to address some needs, with size being a big key. "I believe you have players that get you in the playoffs, and you have players that get you through the playoffs." As for interest in another addition, Bergevin had some fun with the media while showing what his interest level in Vincent Lecavalier is. "On a scale of 1 to 10? Pretty high."
