Bournival is nice, but he's equivalent to our ordinary 2nd round picks a year afterward.

It was smart of Gauthier to recycle prospects he didn't want (D'Agostini and O'Bryne) for younger ones. That's how you maintain the system after trading 2 and 3rd rounders. The sucky bit was how the draft position rules forced Montreal to 27th drafting position when they should have been drafting 16th. That really limited the influx of talent from the 2010 draft when a guy like Tarasenko or Hishon or Schwatz/Gormley via trade up could have been picked up in the first round instead of trading up for Tinordi.
