I guess a good way of putting it would be that, considering how many quality prospects the Habs have, Timmins can now afford to look for major boom or bust type players in the coming drafts, instead of picking guys with limited ceilings but that are considered "safe" picks.
I think thats a very fair statement.... I don't mind if we go for a couple of those in the first two rounds this year.... I wouldn't blame Timmons, Gainey etc... if they go for the high risk, potential high reward guy in the draft this year, the system is well stocked depth wise but we need an elite offensive talent, and at 25/55 that surefire offensive talent will not be there... but a high risk, high potential reward offensive talent might be.
