Second round talent

It seems like that after the first few players the talent levels off and there could be a lot of good players available in the 2nd round. Teams like Washington and Phoenix have multiple picks in the second round but need help now (Ribeiro, Zednik etc.)

If the Habs could replace these guys with UFA signings, they could maybe trade them for draft picks. Guys like Joe Ryan, Danny Geoffrion and Mike Weber could be available at that time. Juraj Simek from Switzerland is an interesting prospect.

In the third round, Mathieu Carle of Acadie Bathurst might still be around when Mtl comes to the draft table.

With the proper UFA signings and reasonable deals on the other side, the Habs could wind up and handful of solid prospects that could continue the tradition of building depth in the organization.

It wouldn't hurt my feelings if Gainey followed this route.
