I think we drafted 28 players unders such 'privilege'. The only one whe ever played more than 100 games for the habs is Rejean Houle.

The reason we had so many great players before the universal draft, fench or otherwise, is because we were the best at the 'C Form' hunting game, having a humongous farm system.
Houle and Marc Tardif were the last two drafted in 1969,Gilles Tremblay,Bobby Rousseau,Jacques Lemaire Serge Savard all on C forms and played lots more than 100 games.
