top 3 pick to draft a potential star who will be with us for years?


I choose option #2 and guess what... I ain't even mad.
I got to agree with this. Our problem over the last decade and a half has been that we barely make the playoffs and never get to draft top talent. I was so sick and tired of that. I grew up with Jean Beliveau (latter years), Guy Lafleur, Steve Shutt, Larry Robinson, Ken Dryden, Serge Savard, Guy Lapointe.......we have no such talent on this team and have not had this type of talent since......Patrick Roy. Enough is enough. For all of you praising mediocrity and an 8th place in the playoffs, I say you are used to mediocrity and your standard for success is a last place access to the playoffs. You are probably young and never lived the great years of the habs...
