Thursday night the Montreal Canadiens went to the podium and most of the hockey world figured the Canadiens were going to choose the highly touted two-way center who was projected to go first overall for many years now, Shane Wright. The final few weeks before the draft, Juraj Slafkovsky made a big push for the first overall spot and apparently the Montreal Canadiens decided he was the better pick and passed on Shane Wright for Slafkovsky.

Don Cherry who is a native of Kingston, where Shane Wright played for the Kingston Frontenacs, spoke on his Grapevine Podcast about his thoughts on the Canadiens passing over Wright.
I watched the draft and I'm absolutely in shock. Shane Wright goes 4th, I mean that is unbelievable to me. I hope this Kent Hughes knows what he's doing cause he's going to get all the blame.

I was absolutely shocked, shocked is the word, that they didn't pick Shane Wright. I still think he's the number one.

I'll tell you one thing, Kent Hughes better be right on this Slafkovsky. He better be right on him because they will be waiting for him, those fans are tough down there

We all know that Cherry has a preference for Canadian players, he has always spoken highly of ''good'ol Canadian boys'' but in this instance he is on point. If Shane Wright ends up being the player he is projected to be and Slafkovsky does not, a bad decision like this could affect the organization for years. We already saw not too long ago the Montreal Canadiens pass on Brady Tkachuk for Jesperi Kotkaniemi and we all know how that turned out.
