Unfortunately we aren't good enough to make that sort of gamble, since even with Subban we might be even worse than the Leafs.
In a lockout year,let us say the Habs traded with Columbus for their three 1st round choices in return for Subban.This giving the Habs an extra three chances at the top pick,still doesn't insure a top ten choice,but four 1st round picks.If by real bad luck all four are in the 20-30 range,it would give them seven picks in the top 40.Then Timmins chances of getting a player capable of replacing Subban are very bad indeed IMO.Would that be a bad gamble,the Habs might get four Top Ten picks on the other hand who knows.One thing for sure is the Habs had better be able to sign a good UFA to replace Subban in the meantime or the Habs last season could become a regularity for a few years. Are ya feelin lucky punk?lol.
