1964
Claude Gauthier (Detroit)
1970 Ray Martyniuk (Goalie, Montreal)
1974 Cam Connor (Montreal, taken ahead of Pierre Larouche & Bryan Trottier etc)

and my (sorry, not 1-5 but still) favourite...

1973
Morris Titanic (Buffalo, 12th overall, only played 19G's, knee injury)
1963-66 Drafts especially for Montreal area players were very puzzling.

Basically leftovers after the Canadiens had culled the area or holdouts that the Canadiens drafted on a few occasions:

Draft order tended to reflect a willingness/ability to play Junior in Ontario as opposed to talent.
