I dare you to find better with the positions he's had. And let's not forget the absolute STEALS he got us in the other rounds: Halak (9th), Grabovski (5th), Streit (9th), Kostitsyn (7th), Subban (2nd). That's one steal PER YEAR!!
Kostitsyn: Worst player in our top-6, horrible playoffs last year. Many stars drafted after him in the first round.
Chipchura: Traded. Horrible year with the Habs, upside of a below-average 4th liner.
Price: 5th choice overall, horrible year last season, rode the pine in the playoffs.
McDonagh: Traded. Hasn't played an NHL game yet.
Pacioretty: Could not stick with the Habs yet. Pedestrian stats in AHL and NHL.
If that spells success for you, we don't have the same standards. Now about those steals...
Streit: Not resigned.
Subban: The exception.
Only one of those players has any chance of making an impact with the team this year. All the others were deemed expendable. That is a pretty dismal record if you ask me.
