Montreal owned all of those teams when they took all their own players not drafted.They gave that right of ownership and the right to draft the first two players from the Q,in 1969 to help with the expansion.Buffalo reaped the Gilbert Perreault train due to Montreal's gift to the NHL,and so many other teams since like Pittsburgh and Mario Lemieux.The list of players and the benefits the NHL has gained from that gift,would be near impossible to fathom,thanks is what should be offered by hockey fans worldwide not derision.Hoorah Habs!
