I'm less pessimistic than you. I foresee an improved defense with the players on hand. Gionta and Moen will help and I expect additional secondary scoring from Eller and Leblanc. The Habs might get lucky with their first draft pick (or even one of their seconds). Some poster (I forget who) suggested the possibility of packaging that pick with other assets or picks in a trade to get Huberdeau. That may seem like a stretch but it's far more plausible than signing Suter or Parise.
