Second round talent
 
It seems like that after the first few players the talent levels off and there could be a lot of good players available in the 2nd round. Teams like Washington and Phoenix have multiple picks in the second round but need help now (Ribeiro, Zednik etc.)

If the Habs could replace these guys with UFA signings, they could maybe trade them for draft picks. Guys like Joe Ryan, Danny Geoffrion and Mike Weber could be available at that time. Juraj Simek from Switzerland is an interesting prospect.

In the third round, Mathieu Carle of Acadie Bathurst might still be around when Mtl comes to the draft table.

With the proper UFA signings and reasonable deals on the other side, the Habs could wind up and handful of solid prospects that could continue the tradition of building depth in the organization.

It wouldn't hurt my feelings if Gainey followed this route.

if we can have a pick between 31 and 40 we could grab a very good prospect
I think Zednik to PHO 2nd pick could be a great move , I really like Ryan Hillier if we can pick him Ill be very happy , Codi Burki seems to be a really good pick thought

Every year, that worn out line gets used ad infinitum, and gets proven wrong when high end talent gets drafted beyond the first round.How come the best players taken in the 1996 draft came from the lower rounds, in a weak draft year?

This silly cliche needs to be buried once and for all.

It's not really a cliche. It's a proven fact that the majority of the highest impact players come from the early first round picks. For every Zetterburg or Datsuk there are 2 or 3 Lemieux's or Crosby's

It could be a good move I really want Y.Alexandrov in our organisation!
