I think our 1st, AK and another prospect is more than enough and more than I'd pay for a 5th in a shallow draft.
Just a recent reminder but Benny P, Brule,
, Filatov, Turris etc have all been drafted in the first 6 spots and I wouldn't trade AK by himself for any of them. Draft picks have potential but no guarantees. No use throwing away the farm on a hope and a dream imo.
I agree with your point but Evander Kane doesn't belong in that class. Kane is exactly the type of young player the Habs could use....speed, goal scoring ability, built like a horse, great along the wall. He has impact player written all over him.
Again, I do agree with your point though. The folkd on this board overrate draft eligible players in a big way.....it's the same thing ever year....just take it with a grain of salt. If we did trade up to draft Huberdeau, they'd want us to trade him in 3 years for a top 5 pick just because his development is going through some growing pains like most 20 year olds.
