Since it's tougher to get those as you can't finish bottom 5 in Montreal 2 or 3 years in a row, somehow, it tells me that it's easier to build a team with speed, skills and a great mix, things you can build elsewhere than with a top 5 pick.
My point of view, exactly. 3 franchise players. We're not getting that anytime soon. It's not going to come through UFA neither is it going to come from trades. Might as well keep fixing the holes we can, trust Timmins for the draft, and hope for the best, instead of adding what we already have in guys like Bouchard, Elias, or Briere.
