2000-Ron Hainsey
2000-Marcel Hossa
2001-Mike Komisarek
2001-Alexander Perezhogin
2002-Chris Higgins
2003-Andrei Kostitsyn
2004-Kyle Chipchura
2005-Carey Price
2006-David Fischer
2007-Ryan McDonagh
2007-Max Pacioretty
2009-Louis Leblanc

next player:
2000-Vaclav Nedorost
2000-Alexei Mikhnov
2001-Pascal Leclaire
2001-Jason Bacashihua
2002-Jesse Niinimaki
2003-Jeff Carter
2004-Lauri Korpikoski
2005-Gilbert Brule
2006-Bobby Sanguinetti
2007-Lars Eller
2007-Janthan Blum
2009-Chris Kreider

So after looking at this you can not say that the Habs are horrible at drafting in the first round.
The only picks that were better than us were: Carter, Sanguinetti and Eller. You can make a very convincing argument for Blum and Kreider, but right now, those two guys are top prospects in the league, but our guys (Pacioretty and Leblanc) are still very promising, and right now could go either way.
