    Assuming the draft order stays the same, I'm making a mock draft based on the fanbases preferences. So far there has been a clear consensus for all of the picks, but I am unsure about this one. I predict a tight race between Hughes and Boqvist

    1: Buffalo - Dahlin (99%)
    2: Ottawa - Svechnikov (88%)
    3: Arizona - Zadina (77%)
    4: Montreal -

    Wahlstrom, very good scorer and very smart offensively.

    Chose Walstrom even though we have a 2% chance of drafting 4th.

    Good news is we have a better shot at Dahlin.

    Bad news is we have an even better shot of dropping to 5-7 spot.

    We have to “win” the lottery to just not drop. What a dumb system.

    It has to be between Hughes and Wahlstrom.

    undersized Amercian defensemen under 6 feet ,that's right up Montreal's alley ..Quinn Hughes 2018

    Then we get Jack Hughes in 2019.....who is also undersized under 6 feet


    How can you lose with 2 Hughes?

    Hughes is what about 3 -4 more years away before he would show up on the Habs roster??? not like say Sergachev etc...

    Fingers crossed for Dahlin... instant impact starting 2018-19 season..,lol

    How? You are fourth last in the league, so don't you have the highest odds of drafting 4th OV?

    I don't know the specific numbers but it's like 32% chance we draft top 3 and like a 60% chance we draft 6th.

    Why would that be? Did you think that too for Victor Mete or Samuel Girard?

    Montreal trades the fourth overall to the Dallas Stars in return they get the 2021 4th round pick from Dallas and Jason Spezza.

    System was devised to help make sure tanking and teams like the Oilers stop getting 1ovr picks, so you just know they’ll somehow win the lottery. :laugh:

    But you won't with Hughes. Kid might be small but has a IQ that is off the chart, same with skills and speed, that will compensate for his lack of strength. OF COURSE, in Montreal, it's not like everywhere else. So frankly, it has nothing to do with Hugues but everything to do with who is in charge. And they could be able to make whoever they pick NOT play in the NHL soon enough.

    I haven't seen Hughes alot, but from what I've seen he's way too good of a prospect to have to wait on for 4 years. To change the subject, any reason why Boqvist only has one vote? He's viewed by many as the second best defense prospect.

    Not knocking Hughes at all, if you want a version of PK Subban back, he is your guy to draft.....won't surprise me to see it be 3 years before he makes the jump (he might stay in Michigan next year )as where Dahlin would be in a Habs jersey starting this season coming without question.

    So based on this chart we have a 28.8% chance at 3rd or better, 31.6% chance at 4th or better and a 57.7 chance of 5th or better. That doesn't sound that bad to me.

    Chose Wahlstrom.

    Would be happy with Boqvist or Hughes.

    Wahlstrom
    Zadina
    Boqvist
    Hughes
    Dobson

    That is my top-5 starting at the 3rd overall pick.
