For those that think the Habs are a bad drafting team.

I read the rest or your post to see if you could explain that statement. You did not.
I completely disagree with you and I would guess so do lots of others on this board.
Defending Habs drafting because we have drafted more third liners in the NHL than any other team is not going to cut it.
Except for Price at no. 5, and possibly PK, the Habs have not drafted a true star player since Roy, and Chelios. I love Saku, but he is not a star.
And we have not won a cup for 20 years precisely because we have not done that.
The argument here is really this: Have the Habs drafted well enough in the last 20 years to win a cup?
