The Habs have already had a team with good defence,goalie(Theodore)star forward (Koivu) with assorted top six wingers and scratched their way only to lose to the eventual SC's.I would hope that the Chicago SC gives enough insight to the depth needed to win the SC.Bergevin's actions since joining the Habs shows that he has his priorities in order,taking care of the farm system being paramount,drafting(Scouting Team enlarged)and signing character players that stand up for their teammates.The next order of business is recruiting the best young talent available to help the team long term.The Habs aren't winning any SC's for at least three years,so why take on costly UFA's that will just insure the draft picks the team gets are in the teens instead of where the team should be.Doing it the right way may be difficult for a couple of years but well worth the wait,who knows Connor McDavid could end up being a Hab.The Habs would be a definite contender with Galchenyuk and McDavid lining up alongside Price,Subban,Pacioretty,Hudon,Bozon,Collberg and our vaunted defence in four years.The Habs haven't had the benefit of two top five picks in thirty years,it's about time our GM sees the needs and how to get them.
