And Columbus wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity to draft a guy like Adam Fantilli.
For the Habs, it made no difference at this point. After all, three center players for three center players was pretty much the same thing, let’s face it.
That’s not what it was all about.
We all knew that Columbus wanted a center. So it’s no surprise, at this point, that the best center available was taken by the Ohio outfit.
That’s where it changed for the CH. After all, if Will Smith, Matvei Michkov or any other guy was selected, that’s when the Habs would react by making a trade or keeping the prized pick.
