Kaberle was a calculated risk, it didn't turn the team around but it wasn't that bad a move. We lost nothing for him. Is that all the ammo you have?

I'd be worried that some of the young talent that we have now won't want to stick around and hope that the team can be better 4 or 5 years down the road. Getting multiple top draft picks won't help a lot if Price, PK and Patches all leave as UFA's because they don't want to wait to win.
I didn't say "multiple years" I said this one year. I don't believe the habs need the level of rebuilding the oilers do. One good draft could essentially give us the single prospect that could fill the position we have no hope of filling in any other way (outside of massive overpayment).

The team is done, before tonight they had a faint shot but after that I am convinced we have zero chance. We are sitting at 7th place and have a very real chance at getting a top 5 maybe top 3 pick. This is a shot at a level of player the habs have not had in years and we should take full advantage of it.

Or we could crawl up to 9th place and draft someone who will fill a 3rd line role in 4 years, whatever floats your boat.
