I'm not buying that. The difference is the team is much better now and doesn't need its prospects pushed to the NHL so quickly to fill holes. Pacioretty was brought in at 19 because the Canadiens didn't really have many scoring options. Now, after Gainey's summer shopping spree two years ago, they have more talent on board and can afford to wait for the young guys to develop.
