We could stack talent at every position.

Our base: Price, Subban, Galchenyuk, Gallagher, Beaulieu, Tinordi, Leblanc, Eller, Collberg, Gorges, Emelin, Paccioretty.

Let's dream a little a think that Montreal get a other top 5 pick in 2013, finishing again in the bottom of the league. Add the two first round (let's say between 20 and 30) and three 2nd round.

1st pick: Mackinnon or Jones or Shinkaruk. The two first are no brainer. Let's take Shinkaruk, he's a goal scorer compare to P.Kane.

2nd Pick: Jonathan Drouin. Excellent playmaker. Grit for his size.

3rd pick: Adam Erne. Top 6 power foward.

4th pick : Jordan Subban. Big Potential. Just like is brother but smaller.

With the others two 2nd round you take the BPA.

A couple year from there, our team will look like that.

Paccioretty - Galchenyuk - Shinkaruk
Eller - Drouin - Erne
Collberg - Leblanc - Gallagher

PK Subban - Tinordi
Beaulieu - Gorges
J. Subban - Emelin


Put heavyweight enforcers on the 4th line and you have a cup contender.
Any team with "heavyweight enforcers" on the 4th line isn't a contender for anything at the NHL level. Unless you mean big guys who can hit, fight (when it's needed) and play solid hockey, like Shawn Thornton, or Paul Gaustad (though I really am not that big a fan of his), in which case maybe...but it depends on the guy.

As for your "dream" who in their rihgt mind would dream of another horrible season? I get it...I was fully on board from basically February 1 2012, for the high pick hopes...but hoping for that now? Good lord.

Also, Markov wouldn't fetch a 1st rounder, unless it was deadline time and he'd been playing good hockey all season but in that case A) the team would probably be nowhere near a bottom 5 pick and B) if he's playing well and helping the team work towards the playoffs why on Earth would you trade him.

And, trading Plekanec for just a nameless 1st round pick in a draft (even a supposed deep draft like 2013 is expected to be) is a terrible trade and nowhere near the value you should be hoping to get if you're moving Plekx.
