Sometimes a top-3 can be NHL ready, sometimes they can't be. Just because it seems to be a theme lately it does not mean that will always be the case. We don't even know if a player in the top 3 will even pan out for us in the NHL. We all know the horror stories.

It's a stupid risk and to even consider it is simply ludicrous. What has happened to Habs fans? We are the face of the league, the most storied franchise of hockey; we should always strive for excellence. Rooting for our team to lose so we could have a chance at a good player who isn't even guaranteed to make a difference is pathetic in my opinion.
