If he gets a Gomez contract...7+ cap hit over 5-7 years, then whoever gets him will end up regretting it. Richards is a good player, but not a great one and he's probably going to start declining in the next few years. If Sather gets him he's sure to be a bust.

Siemens is not even worth a top 10 pick let alone going ahead of Strome Couturier Murphy or Hamilton. Red Line has him at #24 and some teams don't even have him in round 1, he is a big wild card. He's a solid stay at home d-man but the "WHL effect" probably overrates him much like Teubert. We can probably draft a better player than him at #17.

If Huberdeau or Couturier is still there at #5, does Montreal make an offer to the Isles for that pick to get the potential Quebec Star???

Couturier isn't a Quebecer, he was born in Arizona, also grew up in Wisconsin, Germany and New Brunswick where he currently resides.
