MY faves in this list are Mcneill and Beaulieu but I doubt they'll be available, realistically I think it will be Miller, he might still be around and he's most likely close to being one of the BPA's available for at 17 and is a major organizational need.

I REALLY want the Habs to move up and try to acquire the 5th pick in the draft and draft Dougie Hamilton

If not than draft

Oleksiak


The Habs clearly focus on the Defense. You can't have everything (exceptional forwards and D-MAN) They chose the D-MAN route and it will pays off soon !

Amongst that list, my bet would go for Morrow or Klefbom. This is a poll about who Timmins will pick, which eliminate the ones we think we'll be gone when he picks....and which eliminates the ones we think he's not going to pick. Frankly, in that list only, I only see the 2 guys I mentioned.

Puckmoving skills, great skaters, typical Timmins picks on D.

I chose JT Miller but have to admit, Boone Jenner would be sick to have on our team because of his name alone. He almost can't fail, that name is too cool!

It'll be between JT Miller and Boone Jenner. I would say Miller for sure but with the acquisition of Alain Berger, there is the very real possibility that Timmins and company got a look at Jenner.

I would have no problem with either player.

I hope if Rocco is still on the board they go with him. Size be Damned hes a top end talent. When he makes the team, whenever he does, I'm sure some of the small guys will be gone. Plus Rocco apparently did well at the combine? Timmins really likes the fitness freaks.

Guy is about 4 inches from being a #1 overall. I won't have any qualms if they risk it on him, but then again there's a lot of (short) reason why the Habs would be the LAST team to risk it.

He's going to pick someone from a U.S. development program or someone from a Minnesota highschool.

How many gold medal Hockey Canada dinosaurs will take to learn?
Truth my friend. Our arrogance will let the Americans catch us at our own game. The key to staying on top is evolution. You have to evolve and look for ways to stay on top instead of just waiting for everyone to catch you.

I'm pretty sure the worlds best players come from Canada. I'm also pretty sure our boys at the WJC went through the Americans before losing to the Russians in an epic choke job. I'm guessing coming 2nd two years in a row after winning the championship 5 times in a row just isn't good enough?

The Americans are bridging the gap quick. There is more interest in playing hockey in the U.S. and they are very well organized.

All I'm saying is that to stay on top you have to keep looking to up your game. No need to try to appear uber intelligent by throwing sarcastic digs.

No sarcastic digs on my side. The US is getting better at hockey, but it is a fallacy to claim that the Canadian system is not working up to par. The Dub and OHL are doing just fine, the LHJMQ could be better.

No Connor Murphy? Biggest riser in the draft - don't be surprised to see him picked in the top 20.

Hopefully PG and Timmins have the sack to take Grimaldi if he is there at 17.

This draft is completely littered with future Chipchura, Paille, Skille, Kilger types.

Grimaldi has very achievable St.Louis/Briere upside.....imo it would be a huge mistake to pass on him.

If available, I would like to see PG take Duncan Siemens. There have been a lot of detractors over the past 2 months, with his draft rankings being anywhere from Top 12 to mid 30's. However, no prospect drafted at 17 will be in the lineup for at least 2 years, and that development time will help Siemens game.

He has the size and speed to be a very special contributor on the blue line for Montreal for years to come. Question have arisen about his offensive abilities, but he does make a good first pass, and is a good skater, which is an asset for a 6'3" defender. He plays with a physical edge, which means sometimes he is out of position. But all hitters have to learn when to be physical, which comes with experience. He has been compared to a young Scott Stevens, and that upside says to me he is worth the risk. At worst he is a Top 6 defender, but he has the potential to be a devastating Top 2 puck separator, which this team could desperately use.

We drafted a guy like that last year.
