Is it what you said? Let alone that Montreal has been overall mediocre to average at best since I started following them in 1994, so I didn't even saw them winning the cup once. Sorry, but what kind of stupid argument is that?

Does that also mean that teams like Toronto, NY Islanders and Dallas to name a few have less the right to pick first overall than Columbus or say Buffalo because those teams already won the cup?
Of course I am saying that. Is that not clear logic? I do not think it gets any clearer then a team not winning a cup ever deserving a top notch player to lead them to a possible Stanley. I doubt anyone can even argue with my logic really. It is pretty plain, simple, and clear.
