Bergevin can trade for a low 1st and improve it by throwing in one of his 2nd picks. This is said to be a great draft...imagine the Habs with two 1sts and two 2nds....

Notwithstanding the draft, we would be left with Subban at quarterback position, with future prospects Tinordi, Beaulieu, Thrower, Dietz, and probably one fantastic prospect at D coming from one of those 1st picks.

If you think that the Habs are cup contenders now, then forget about trading Markov. On the other hand, if you think that with the right moves we will be in that position in a couple of years, then a trade like this can benefit both teams.

My only worry is that we got hosed the last two times that we traded with the Blues!!!!
