    I say he trades it for a youngish Centre. I hope I’m wrong.

    Edit: the idea of this poll is what do you think our all-wise GM will do, unlike the other poll which is what would you do?

    He drafts Tkachuk and we spend the next decade watching every other player selected in the top 10 be a better player than him.

    1. Zadina

    2. Teams with depth at center will be making the call about a trade. They know we need centers and they know how good Zadina is. It's anybodies guess at what they offer.

    1. Zadina
    2. Trades down in order to draft one of Kotkaniemi, Veleno or Hayton is available (that's depending on the trade partner)

    Personally, since #3 doesn’t have a can’t miss star and given this organizations one strength, left shot wingers, I’d be open to trading down, draft a center and pick up another quality asset. Habs are one organization that needs quantity. Two 6.5-7/10’s are better than one 7.5-8/10.

    1. Draft Zadina.
    2. Bring back plecky and claim he will be a mentor for zadina. Insuring that he is on the right side of the Attitude line.

    The other one is what you would do. This one is what you think bozovin WILL do. Different.

    Next poll, what could you do with the 3rd overall? Then, what could Bergevin do with the 3rd overall?

    Zadina, a pure scorer which is a major need for the Habs, it has to be him.

    At this point I'm really hoping he just drafts Zadina, don't know if I trust him to do anything else. I'd assume his idea of a trade offer that can't be turned down is much different than what the majority of us think, but I'd love to be proven wrong.

    He will do the easy (and IMO) right thing and draft Zadina. No need to over complicate things.

    I want Boqvist, but we’ll likely draft Zadina, which I will be happy with.

    This is all assuming Carolina drafts Svechnikov which I expect they will, but who knows with that franchise.

    He will take Zadina. Honestly, it will be anti-climatic.

    Trade the number 3 pick for Borgstrom in Florida! They are stacked at center, or package patches with the pick for a bigger deal including Borgstrom, As long as he is involved in the deal i really don't care. Obviously if patches was the tipping point it would need to be more.

    Maybe this would pry him from the organization.

    Trade up to #2 and draft Svechnikov.

    Crazy how Habs let Dudley join Canes right as draft approaches. That seems to be a killer for this deal - Dudley knows Bergevin's hand.

    I don't think it's really a big deal. The Habs haven't finalized their final draft list. The hurricanes are selecting in front of the Canadiens. Dudley will likely be bound to a confidentiality agreement.

    In every subsequent round, we select ahead of them. There's really no risk here.

    I still not able to cast a ballot yet but I would predict what WeThreeKings said above to be the closest approximation of what actually goes down: we will draft "attitude" over "aptitude" by taking Tkachuk and then spend the next decade wondering why we still can't score goals.
