Getting to play an abbreviated season should be beneficial to the Habs future,a Top Five Draft pick being their likely finish to the season.Given the lottery being weighted in favor of order of finish and only the non-playoff teams involved,the Habs could get fortunate and draft 1st,2nd or 3rd again.Calgary is quite likely to be in the bottom five teams to finish as well,which would make the Habs first two picks in the 2nd round between 30-35,giving them three picks in the Top 35.Depending upon their 1st round pick,the players I would like to see them draft are Alex Wennberg Center from Sweden, A.Mantha RW or V.Zykov RW with the first two picks in the 2nd round and either W.Carrier C/LW or A.Burakowsky C/LW from Sweden.Any combination of three from these five players along with a lottery choice in the 1st round would be a great draft.So let's all hope the NHL & NHLPA agree upon a new CBA,giving the Habs two really successful drafts in a row.This would be very similar to the work done by Dale Tallon in Florida,whose team rejoined the playoffs in his 3rd year as GM and has a plethora of top prospects in their system that will make them "Elite" for years.
