Well here we are two weeks from the Draft and the Habs at 25th may be able to draft McCarron after all and Hayden has fallen off to the 70's. After reading results from the Combines NHL/Habs and Grant's advice and "The Hockey News Draft Preview" of Grant's as well, here are the picks I think the Habs can draft:

#25 - Mike McCarron - RW
#34 - Justin Bailey - C/RW
#36 - John I. Diaby - LD
#55 - Jusse Saros - G
#71 - John Hayden - C/RW
#85 - N. Moutrey - LW
#175 - T. Hill - LW
#205 - L. Coughlin - C

These draft picks may not impress fans the way last years picks did but, signing Prust, Armstrong and Boullion didn't impress us either. The results on the other hand were really impressive, finishing first in the division instead of last. I hope for the same results from the draft and winning the SC when those picks join the Habs in 3-4 yrs.
First four picks taken too early. Better players could be taken with those picks.
