My hopes would be drafting Drouin,Mantha,Gauthier and Carrier in the first four picks, these picks giving our prospects a definite boost of talent through the forward ranks. With the Habs first four picks as they are the Habs may need a couple more late 1st round picks,the way those players are rising.More is Better IMO.
Agree completely.

Normally I'd say go for it, but it's not like we'd have to endure a full season of tanking anyway, and signing Armstrong over Jagr suggests to me that Bergevin sees this as a tank a year anyway.
