"Certainly Martin is a player we've known for a long time. Our scouting staff scouted him when he was just a teenager. We've seen him in Ottawa in the playoffs and we've watched him play with Patrik in many International tournaments. So without question did we feel comfortable bringing in this individual and certainly know the kind of player he can be."
sh!t, I can't tell if this is fake, but it probably is. I'm still bummed that Havlat was taken one before us in 99, I thought he was going to be our pick that year.
