and any player we draft from now on out of top ten will not play for Habs for the next 4 years?

FFS. Jeezus. There is no more 'building through draft'. Not finishing 8th there isn't. Bergy has to start making moves with this core right now.

(BSL makes his 1100th post saying the same thing, no one gets it except, ironically, all the guys who have stopped asking for tank, including me. )

If you say that Habs will never win a cup with Subby and Price, fine, we can build through draft. I have no problem with that. Are you saying that? Yes or no? If no, then Bergy has to go for it, starting at the deadline, by trading useless vets for quality youth. Not picks. NHL ready youth.
Price, Subban, Pacioretty, Gallagher, Galchenyuk, theses pieces will still be there and still at a very very high level of play (better than right now for some) in 4-5 years from now. This is the "core" you want to build around. Forget Plekanec, and expecting/forcing Beaulieu/Tinordi to be good NHL player on the short term would be suicide for their development.

This team, right now, isn't close to being good enough to win the cup. It needs way better depth both on offense and defence, and pure scorers. You don't get that by trading during a season, not all of that.
