Three things have become clear with the new NHL.
Top goalies are hard to find.
Top Centers are hard to find
Top speedy defencemen are hard to find.

The Habs Have both Price and Halek comming.

Koivu will be gone by the time a new draftie can help the Habs.
So two new prospects are needed for center.
So two new defencemen are needed.

The 2007 draft looks deep, it's a good time to aquire an extra draft pick or two. The Gainey can use these to bump up to get a needed top center pick and top defence pick. Then look to find better bets in the second round also.

With the current set of prospects and one more good draft in 2007, the Habs will be OK come 2009-10.

Cheap young top talent is the most prized assets in the new NHL CAP. You can always buy a player if you have great cheap young talent.

The time to act is now, setup a great prospect pool for 2009-10.
The Habs prospect pool is almost there as it is, just one more great draft of needed Center and Defence and it's done.
