Diaby may never play in the NHL, he could be a solid #5-6 like McQuaid or a career minor leaguer, high bust potential IMHO.

Bottom line, winning in the NHL you need all elements, skilled and buising players up front and on defense and a top goalie. Drafting 5-6 big stay at home d-men is not a shortcut to winning a cup.
Who said anything about drafting 5-6 defencemen or are you trying to control the flow of information to get a point across, if so just blurt it out please? Having a big defenceman that can skate, make a good breakout pass and deliver a hit without getting caught out of position is a must for each defence pairing IMO. The Habs if they can draft a few big forwards to blend in on the top nine,(Power forwards with a little nastiness) San Jose, Boston, Toronto will just have to learn to be intimidated by the Habs.
