I really don't see your point...
There is a reason the best players go lower in the draft. Point at a few anomolies where superstars get chosen in late rounds and I can point to hundreds of better players chosen earlier. Montreals drafting isn't that strong so if there is a sure fire player at 18 thats who you take.
Montreal is not Detroit.
If Montreal wants a second rounder they can move one of their roster players and get one.
