By the end of it, he was on the #1PK and received lots of icetime as an underager....Pat Quinns' confidence in Evander kept growing.

This kid has huge upside!
I'd be thrilled if montreal moved up to draft him. Building for the future is always important.

Sometimes its important to play in the present too though, so if that means trading our 1st round pick to acquire a 'roster' player then I'd be happy with that (see Tanguay).
