It wasn't just the Kings/Pens/Hawks to build a cup team by drafting high. Sam Pollock did it way back in the day building the '70s Canadiens dynasty!

Habs drafted 1st overall in 1971, 4th overall in 1972, 2nd overall in 1973. Lafleur, Gainey and Shutt were core pieces to 70s championship teams. If he doesn't make those trades Habs don't win those Cups. They might of had a good team, but not a Cup team. The difference now is teams are not stupid enough to trade their top picks.

Habs have 2 players who were top picks. Price and Galchenyuk. Why stop at 2/3 there? We need a Jones then we have the core to build a great team around
