Bergervin not picking Zadina at third overall in the draft this past Friday is so Bergervin. Instead of the skilled goal scoring machine winger Montreal went with Jesperi Kotkaniemi to fill the void at center that the organization has lacked. Zadina then sat as three players were selected before him. And now Detroit is on the clock with the sixth pick in the draft. At this point I wouldn’t have been surprised to see Zadina not picked again but Ken Holland was intelligent and Filip Zadina was finally selected. Arguably the second-best goal scorer in this years draft, what a fuckin gift for Detroit.
Zadina was asked after he was drafted what he brings to the Red Wings organization:
“I bring the goals.”
If you’re the Red Wings you gotta love grabbing this player at the sixth spot and what he will bring to your team. With Zadina projected to have gone number three in the draft it would’ve been a no brainer for the Montreal Canadiens to select him right? Not if you’re Marc Bergervin.
Zadina had one message for the Canadiens and Senators for not picking him:
“I’m going to fill their net with pucks.”
Like the Senators don’t have enough problems. Well, consider yourself warned.
