They could be Palushaj-types (ie pretty much busts) but they have huge upside without huge flaws in their games.

It's still sinking in that pretty much all our top five picks are high quality NHL prospects in their own ways.
It is nice to have some 2nd rounders for once. The past management were trading away too much youth and picks and it is why the Habs depth got weakened so fast. If we can get 2-3 NHLers from this draft and another 2-3 next year with all the picks Habs could be contenders in 3-5 years.
