- Drafted Maxime Lapierre over David Backes

- Drafted Kyle Chipchura over Travis Zajac, Mike Green or Brandon Dubinsky

- Drafted Guillaume Latendresse over Kristopher Letang

- Drafted David Fischer over Claude Giroux
- Drafted Ben Maxwell over Milan Lucic

- Traded 25th overall draft pick to Calgary for Alex Tanguay, could of drafted Tyler Ennis or John Carlson

2009, 2010 and 2011 all look bright with Leblanc, Tinordi and Beaulieu but only time will well.

So imagine a team with:

Cam Ward, Travis Zajac, Jeff Carter, Kris Letang, Claude Giroux, Milan Lucic and Tyler Ennis in Montreal with Pacioretty, Subban and the rest?

I can't sleep now!!!
By your measuring stick all NHL executives are idiots.

I mean they have no clue how players will develop and who will be good or a bust 5-7 years later. They should make you GM you'd win 20 cups in a row with your crystal ball.

Imagine all the idiots(including Detroit) who let hall of famers and preennial all-stars like Lidstrom Zetterberg and Datsyuk slide to the late rounds of the draft.
