Why Do the Habs Suck at Drafting in the 1st Round?

I think the Calgary comparison is fair. They've been pretty mediocre in the last 20 years (one deep run, mostly early playoff exits), and they're atrocious. I think the Habs go for the safest pick rather than the best pick. Ex. Chipchura was never going to be a 1st line centre with 90 points. Mike Green had the potential to be the Mike Green we know, he could have also been a huge bust. David Fischer wasn't going to be a commanding #1 Dman, and Claude Giroux had a chance to not even make the league. It's picks like that that attribute to the fact that our crop amounts to mediocre players instead of a variety of busts and stars.
