I believe with Halak and Kopitar we would be a better team today then just Price.

Bare in mind also... that it's that lack of a center that made Gainey pull the bonehead trade for Gomez where we lost McDonnagh.

Which would you prefer to have today?

Just Price or
McDee
Kopi
and Halak?

And dont say that we cannot predict what McDonnagh and Halak would do because they were both very highly regarding by the Habs organization.
Very hard to say. They pick the BPA, and I think it's always better to choose that way. IMO, I think that Halak overachieved in Montreal and that you cannot established you're self as a perrenial cup contender with him. With Price approching his prime, everybody will see how good picking him was. If we had Kopitar in 2006-2007 and he had the same impact as in LA (61 pts as a rookie) Probably we would'nt had the high pick to get McDee and maybe we would'nt trade Rivet for Gorges and the 1st round pick who gave us Pacioretty. I think we are better NOW with Price. We finally finish low enough to pick a guy like Galchenyuk. We are on a great track with a goaltender that can only be better and who will bring back the Cup in Montreal.
