Timmins,Bergevin,Dudley and the rest of the new scouting team will have their hands full trying to repeat last years draft haul.The Habs still need another lottery pick just to even things out for the lack of Elite type picks for 30 yrs.If the Habs get another 3rd overall placement in the draft(by way of a shortened season)and the Flames & Nashville fall to lottery picks then the 2013 draft could be monumental for the Habs future.Still if I was Bergevin missing the playoffs,I would load up on more draft choices for this year via trades.Preferably 1st,2nd,3rd round picks and maybe a half dozen 5th rounders for Timmins to really work his Mojo.As another poster wrote drafting Seth Jones would be superb,giving the Habs arguably the best defence & goalie in the NHL within 4-5 yrs. Having another couple of 1st rounders with 3-4 2nd round picks could build the Habs into a perennial Stanley Cup contender by 2015-2016.Trading players that can get a few more high draft choices,will make for a couple of tough seasons.In those years our prospects will mature and the draft picks can assure the Habs of a couple very good forwards that could make the jump right away.HF's job of picking the #1 team for prospects would be like taking candy from a baby.
