If it were this easy, more teams would do it, but it seldom happens because it just isnt a sure fire way to build a contender. No matter how many 1st round picks you get, in the end, its still a gamble over a proven player.
As for the current team, aside from the D in the short-term, I dont think the habs are all in that bad a shape, long-term. A couple of prospects pan out (especially on D), one or two smart signings could be significant.
What do we have to lose? Seriously... we'd be dealing away a bunch of vets who won't win anything with us anyway. If the picks don't work out we can replace them with more mediocre FAs and go back to fighting for 8th again...
