The Habs aren't an elite team but IMO they're too good to be desperately scrambling for the last playoff spot in the last week. By the time their prospects mature in a few years they'll be taken seriously. Since some of the 30 NHLteams are weaker than the Habs, it isn't a lock for them to be in the lottery group. The tankards on this site can't get it through their bony crania that the draftees they gain for players like Markov and Plekanec probably won't be as good as the veterans they replace. Gill and AKost were replaced by Nashville second rounders who may not be as good in the long run. Just look at previous Hab second rounders, such as Ben What's his name, Urquhart, Lapierre, etc. Of the second rounders in in this so-called A+ draft, Collberg has a good chance of becoming a regular, Thrower a smaller chance. Tanking is not a sound strategy.
