Its really difficult I really want both Grigorenko and Galchenyuk. I have a feeling Galchenyuk will be a very good one and if we don't pick him we will regret it for 10 years. Grigorenko is really a can't miss prospect who can become great. Is there anyway to trade for another top pick so we can get both these two and rebuild? I'm sure we have the assets to do so. Anyone but Price and Subban.

Jesus Christ, 6000 posts on a draft that is 3 months away.

We'll break the 20 K mark.

Ok, I'll play along. Would you trade Pacioretty to - let's say - Minnesota for their pick?

I would trade Pac if we can land Yakupov.

Or keep Pacioretty and draft one of Grigorenko or Galchenyuk. That sounds much better to me.

Well if they trade just Pacioretty for Minnesota's pick, Habs could potentially draft both Grigorenko/Galchenyuk and Forsberg.

I still would keep Patches though.

I don't know how much stock you can put into the "Russian" argument, but I will go the opposite and say that if Yakupov, Grigorenko and Galchenyuk are taken, I like the idea of drafting a Swede. It's been a while since the Habs have had a Swedish star, and it seems to me that players from Sweden are more consistent (if not high end talent) in their play.

Still leaning more towards Forsberg.

Question marks with Grigorenko and Galchenyuk. I think having another big winger to compliment Pacioretty would be ideal. Plus he's still 17 until August.

Its Galchenyuk or Forsberg for me, provided we don't land the number 1 pick.

How cool would it be to win the lottery and draft 1st overall...

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole
Yakupov - Plekanec - Gionta
Bourque - Eller - Leblanc

I already shiver when I see Bourque, just like I did with Pouliot after his first year, hopefully someone trades for him for a 6th rounder.

It's seem that Timmins its scouting strongly Grigorenko for a wild yesterday at the radio Stephane Leroux from RDS said that. And he said (Trevor Timmins text me to know when the round 2 of the Rempart start against Halifax). So if Grigorenko had a strong playoff run i'm sure we will draft him.

Timmins should (and is) scouting all these guys. It doesnt mean we know what he's thinking.

He's been in Sarnia recently too

He'll surely be at the U18 too

He's racking the air miles

Surprised Timmins doesn't know how to navigate the Q website to find out when it starts

Galchenyuk and Yakupov choking in the playoffs while Grigo played quite well against a gritty and dirty Drummondville's team. At this point it's a no-brainer for me. And I talked to 3 Remparts players few hours ago and then said there's no way he goes back to Russia, he loves Qc and learning English rapidly. They also said he was not like other Russians and that he was a great teammate.

Yakupov is not playing well

All reports are that Galchenyuk looks dominant in the playoffs but is robbed by hot goaltending.

And Saginaw is much much better than Drummondville

Hey, I'm not trying to hate on Galchenyuk because if we can't lend Grigo, he's my first choice. I'm just trying to expose the double standard around here. If Grigo ran into a hot goalie and went 4 pts in 5 games with -6, all you would see here would be the Russian choker label. Yet, you see people around here saying Galchenyuk is a Toews in the making. Let's see some good 5 vs 5 in the CHL before saying this.
