UFA and trades will not get us there, ever.

I believe this. This lockout is a disaster for us if they lose the season. Habs desperately need another top 5 pick in 2013, and after years of finishing 8th on average, working like hell to make the playoffs with integrity, they deserve it.

No one, no one here has ever mentioned how odd it is that the oldest NHL club can work so hard for so long to become cup competitive, and yet fail so badly. Massive amounts of money, history, knowledge, huge effort, and not even close. Houle? Yes, partly. Gainey? Not really. Why has this happened?

I suggest you look at the NHL draft system, and especially the draft after the last lockout, and, if this season is lost, I suggest you look at the draft in 2013. It will be a ****ing disaster for us.
And the Leafs would probably win the lottery since they can count on 3 balls
