There are 30 teams in NHL. You have a 20 man game roster and about 2-3 reserves. So all total you have about 660 players in the NHL. Most 1st rounders make the NHL and some 2nd rounders. After the first two rounds it's all gambling on which of these players can make it to NHL.
Why do people get so upset if Montreal is trying to find some bigger guys that may be able to improve enough to make it to NHL. After 2nd round most of these players have all kinds of issues that need fixing or developing if they are ever to make it to NHL.
As long as Habs can get 2-3 picks a year to develop and become regular NHLers from any round they will be able to improve their team depth and cores. The issue was watching past GMs trade away young talent before they reached their abilities for scraps.
