Did the Habs make a mistake by passing on Esposito? Did Bob Gainey do the right thing by taking Ryan McDonagh with his first pick? Why wasn't the 18-year-old snatched up earlier?
Have your say in our forum.
Esposito could turn out to be a total bust and never make the NHL or he could be a first line player or somewhere a bit lower.

Just because he is from Montreal and has skill doesn't mean they MUST take him. Montreal is loaded with offensively gifted youngsters working there way up. We needed depth on defense, and more physical players, and that is what we got.
I wish Angelo all the best, but Montreal shouldn't be getting slammed for this, the only reason it is a "surprise" is because the media needs something to talk about.
