But I don't understand why the Habs would draft a defenseman in the first round when you've got a very small team that gets pushed around all the time. Wouldn't it be wise to pickup a big kid that can score in the draft instead of another defenseman?

No I hate to see teams pick today what they need now. The Habs don't rush their prospects, and there's no way of saying who will be on the team or what the team needs will be in 3-5 years from the time of the draft.

Hopefully we pick before the leafs, grab Fransson, and he knocks over Sundin on his way to getting the game winner as the small pushed around Habs without a big center that they could have drafted but didn't, go on their way to their 25th Cup.
