I don't know where you got the 7 number as there are only 6 of them... Who is the seventh player???
Ok! Let's count together!!

2001 Draft
1/7 - Mike Komisarek 1
1/25 - Alexander Perezhogin 2
Both well before Detroit even had a pick. (#62)

2002 Draft
1/14 - Chris Higgins 3
Before Detroit had a pick. (#58)

2003 Draft
1/10 - Andreď Kostitsyn 4
2/61 - Maxim Lapierre 5
Detroit's first pick was #64

2004 Draft
1/18 - Kyle Chipchura 6
Detroit's first pick was #97

2005 Draft
1/5 - Carey Price 7
Detroit first picked #19

Seven. Good job! You did it!!! Seven of Montreal's successes were drafted before Detroit even had a pick.

If you want to include the other 3 picked after the first three rounds (only 3???), fine... those were not included in the original post but we'll go ahead and do it.

7/13 is still over 50% of Montreal's successful picks during that period were before Detroit had a single pick.

PS -- This tone is only directed at one poster, not the Canadien fan base.
