So we already know that Subban was gem of a pick in the second round & if that draft were redone, he would be a top ten, if not a top five pick that year.

How can you guarantee that you get a even close to that talent with multiple picks??? & how do guarantee that these picks are fairly low picks, the game is played on the ice not on paper & as much as we Habs hope the Leafs continue to suck, there is no way of knowing where they will end up in the standings. A huge, huge gamble with that kind of thinking!!!

A healthy maturing bird in hand is far, far better than four eggs that have yet to hatch!!!
