    What?

    Audette was a first overall in the Q. I don't believe we picked him because of his dad. Hayden is Pat's nephew, and Bergevin never played with him (Martin Lapointe did though). I don't really like the signing but I guess they saw something in him to just pick him like that, doesn't have much to do with the name.

    And Reilly isn't spelled the same way as Morgan Rielly. It's also a quite popular irish name... Again no correlation.

    Bergevin is an idiot, but the family names have no correlation whatsoever.

    This isn't basketball, a hockey team is more than one player, that's on them to build a winning roster, not on that ****ing loser Dionne and his 700 goals

    Edit: or Gretzky, guess they didn't need that loser to still not win a cup

    Dude i was just messing around.

    Although it's funny how most people catch on to the Morgan Reilly thing.

    You got me scared for a second. You never know on HFBoards...

    I cringe whenever I see someone say we have Rielly on our team...

    I ran that stupid simulator on tankathon and in the first three tries we picked 6th twice and 7th once. Only on the fourth try did we get 3rd.

    Damn lottery.

    After a rough season it is a bluk offseason, then it's the draft lottery soon. But I sense bad luck and bergevin and staff are enough of great suffer. But through out couple years at the draft lottery we nearly hit a Franchise Centre Matthews, it was 1 ball away from lottery win and Toronto wins by getting the lucky ball 13, not only we traded our prospect Sergechev (which we would have left D with Weber) but my hopes are high for this draft lottery, we may have gotten good players through out 1990-2004 05 and it's been rough for the habs since. What are your closes POV of draft lotteries? I'd like to hear your thoughts, make my offseason habs feel better and regretful times (lol)

    I remember when the Pens lost the Ovechkin lottery, was the end of the world.

    Imagine getting stuck with Malkin?

    I know it`s rare that there are two players of that level available to be drafted but that`s the draft. Alot of 18 year olds are hyped beyond their potential and other good prospects may not have hit stride as of yet.

    Edmonton is the poster for the lottery not being the end all, it still takes sage visionary décisions when you pick, wherever that is.

    Which is why I have no faith in the Habs, even if they wind up with the 1st overall pick. This bunch will find a way to outsmart themselves and select the next Doug Wickenheiser.

    It would be interesting to see all teams lists after a draft and compare them over time. I would imagine there are alot of heated arguments that go into those lists.

    Wickenheiser would have been the top pick of a bunch of teams from memory. I remember Guy Lafleur saying there was no pressure on him when he was drafted, he was only expected to replace Jean Beliveau (as if anyone ever could). When Wickenheiser was drafted, he was expected to replace Lafleur eventually. That`s a heck of a piano to get tied to anyone`s back.

    I think alot of kids benefit from getting drafted into relative obscurity and are allowed to develop at their pace.

    Would Isles trade both their #1 picks to move up to our pick?

    If we win the lottery our idiot GM will probably trade him for Jonathan Toews or something.

    I will be ecstatic if we draft Hughes and with no centres where we’re picking I feel like it’s a definite possibility. :nod:

    Really excited for this offseason. All that cap space pretty much guarantees a big UFA signing or two and even if it’s not Tavares, Kane, Perron, Neal. Really good offensive options out there. And everyone’s saying we need a number 2 but Chicago didn’t really have a true in winning a few cups. Danault could be very serviceable in that slot of surrounded properly. And there’s poehling too. He’ll be coming along soon enough

    But Chicago had a #1, we don't have a 1 or 2 C.

    Disagree about UFAs this offseason. JT is obvious, but the rest are just complimentary pieces. Pieces we need, sure, but not if we don’t fix our center situation and left defence. Carlson is a right shot, as is Green.

    eloel. Look at all dem big name UFAs we acquired last summer with all da cap we had.

    Besides, the only reason we should be going for UFAs would be to flip them at the TDL a few months later. Not too worried about not getting a blue chip centre this draft, we're bound to suck ass next year.
