I hear what you are saying however his premise is correct. It is comparing apples to apples as we know for a fact that if that trade was made then it would have been Svoboda, Corson, Richer and Roy that we would be missing out on. It is obviously unlikely that Pit drafts the same players but that is irrelevant to the conversation. History has shown that from the Montreal Canadiens perspective these were the assets that were to be lost/gained.
