Then here's a look at the players that both teams drafted in second round and later since 1998

Detroit Red Wings :

Datsyuk - 171 overall
Zetterberg - 255 overall
Kopecky - 38 overall
Fillpula - 95 overall
Fleishman - 63 overall
Hudler - 58 overall
Franzen - 97 overall

Montreal Canadiens :

Ryder - 216 overall
Markov - 162 overall
Ribeiro - 45 overall
Plekanec - 71 overall
Halak - 271 overall
Streit - 262 overall
Sergei Kostitsyn - 200 overall
Latendresse - 45 overall

That's pretty close in overall quality and quantity.

Can't wait to see what the comparison will look like in 5 years though.
