Is it worth cheering for Ottawa over Pittsburgh?

Ottawa winning gives the Habs another step up to 24th pick and if Detroit wins the Habs pick 23rd overall. Beautiful two more spots up makes trading up easier,the team trading usually wants a first back and 23rd isn't a bad pick. At 23rd Bergevin has a good chip at the table with say Montreal's 2nd and Dallas's 3rd to move up to 18th.
Then move Calgary's 2nd and the 18th for the 13th overall. The Habs can either do it that way or trade all of those picks and a roster player to Edmonton, Calgary or Carolina for a choice at the 5th, 6th, or 7th spot. This would leave them with a really good choice in the 1st and 2nd, with their 3rd, 6th & 7th picks.
At 5th the choices are a franchise type to join Galchenyuk, Nicushkin LW/RW is the epitome of a PF and his KHL contract is over in two yrs. Also there are the Swedes, Wennberg and Lindholm both are great players and are game changing forwards.(Centers) Darnell Nurse at defence is still evolving and will be a force when he fills out. Max Domi is the special talent I would like to see on the Galchenyuk line with Collberg, just absolute nightmare for goalies throughout the league.
If the Habs go Nurse and follow that up with Morin at 34th, they will have secured their defence for the future. Imagine a defence with Beaulieu, Diaz, Emelin, Gorges, Morin, Nurse, Subban, Tinordi and still have other prospects like Bennett, Thrower, Deitz and Didier. The Habs can either replace players traded or be part of a trade for
missing pieces for an Elite Team.
