Having so many smaller prospects in the system is worrisome and anytime the thought of trades comes to mind, so does PWF's to afford protection for them.
To that point on the Trade Thread, I've suggested Tom Wilson from Washington, another PWF that comes to mind is Zach Budish from Nashville. They are both RW's with huge promise to become the next big PWF, but the price tags on players of their ilk is Huge also.
The best way is through wise drafting and patience in developing these prospects, and Bergevin has shown the resolve as GM to acquire some very promising ones. Another player that has my interest is Defenceman Dylan McIlrath, a great upcoming defensive defenceman to complement Tinordi on our blueline. Here again the price would be high, Glen Sather hasn't been a GM that ever gets fleeced, so drafting is the only alternative I see for the Habs.
Until Timmins can be afforded the luxury of having two or three 1st round picks, like Buffalo, Calgary or Columbus last year. It appears possible the Habs may be in a position to acquire that type of drafting power this season with all of the UFA's they will have at the trade deadline this year. Well I can dream there is no doubt about that and like every season there are some really good PWF's and big Dmen available again.
These players are what the Habs need to bring them over the Top, I just hope when the Habs draft this year at least one of the needs get filled with an elite choice. Aaron Ekblad or Nick Ritchie and possibly Nick Ehlers the soon to be superstar from Halifax Mooseheads, last season it was Samuel Morin but he didn't remain a secret for long.
How I wish the Habs trade for some 1st round picks and load up for the near future's Dynasty, Go Bergevin Go! I know patience damn.
I've seen you saying this multiple times here on this board, why do you keep repeating the same thing that comes from a fantasy world? The Habs don't absolutely need another elite choice.
Pacioretty, Eller, Galchenyuk, Collberg, McCarron (we'll see about the last two), Subban, Beaulieu and Tinordi are coming. You want another elite choice? Say byebye to one of them. I think we already have a great prospect pool and another elite player would cost too much.
Except if we suck all year long...
