I'd say that's not an excuse, but alright then:
Between 1996 and 2003, they produced 3 players who are still in the NHL (Habs have 13). Not a good track record.
They had good years in 2004 and 2005 with 6 NHL players out of 15 picks (Habs have 8 out of 16).
Since then, none of their draft picks have played in the NHL except for their first overall picks (all in the top 8), who are all in the AHL right now (and none close to a 1 PPG ratio)...
Except for Mueller who's been getting worse every season since his rookie year and the rumors are that he's being shopped. Now, between 2005 and today, you can't judge as almost none of the Habs picks have played either. But you can't deny that they don't have a good history.
