Best course of action IMO is keep Pleks one more year, let whoever we take this year develop and then trade Pleks next year for a shot at someone like Barkov or Jones. This years draft is way too hit or miss. The habs are too good to purposly tank if we get a half decent coach.
If we want Barkov or Jones we have to sacrifice next year otherwise we don't get them. That's how it works and if we don't do that we end up with someone else.

It's going to take a whole lot more than an additional 7th rounder to go with that 1st round pick.

Take a good long look again there haven't been any changes yet other than the GM,so don't bet your wad on the Habs being better next year.Parity isn't doing any favors and neither is the salary cap for the Habs with Gomez in tow.

Pleks had a down year and will redeem himself with some decent wingers next season increasing his value. With 3 years left on his friendly contract we can easily keep him for a playoff run and trade him at the draft for a top 10 pick. We don't have to sacrifice anything, hopefully Galchenyuk/Forsberg will have taken a step forward and will be ready for NHL action after next season.

I don't need to see changes because I was happy with the team. With the addition of a good coach/assistant coach and a few pieces to round out the offense we are a playoff team without a doubt. How we ended up in the bottom fo the conference is nuts, we got very lucky certain teams heated up and Martin wasn't kept around to force his gutless playstyle on the team.

There is no way the habs pick is top 10 next season, better make this one count.

Out of curiosity, when was the last time an established roster player got traded for a top 10 pick?

Edit: Carter for Voracek + 1st & 3rd? Yeah June 23, 2011 also.

Do you really think we can trade Plekanec at the draft next year for Seth Jones or Barkov because I don't. I don't see it as being even a remote possibility unless either of them completely fall out of favour. Just for a laugh maybe you can make a trade proposal involving that trade just before draft day next year. Just for a laugh.

I believe it has been common knowledge for months that Columbus is taking Forsberg,barring some earth-shattering trade.

If we get Yakupov i will seriously jump off my seat and maybe cry of joy.

The fun fact is that we could very well get him since the jackets don't have much love for russians (zherdev Filatov fiasco).

We had belarussians fiasco no russian we in fact do pretty well with Russian i think (Emelin Kovalev Markov) all did well in mtl. I don't see wahy we wouldn't take a shot at Grigs or yakupov if he is available.

Perhaps but trading picks with Edmonton is a possibility and would not be that expensive IMO.

No it will be expensive. Lowe and Tambellini have said they want a lot for the first pick. Said besides getting best player there is a whole business side to it and brings lots of marketing opportunities. Said teams will have to pay for that privilege if they want it

Murray to Oilers and Frosberg to Columbus is realistic possibility. Don't forget that Nash is likely gone so Forsberg becomes that power forward to build around for them.

Yakupov is the only player in this upcoming draft whose name could be big enough to ''hype up'' the Jackets and to bring up the attendance figures, he also plays a flashy brand of hockey which is a big draw for fans, there's no way they pass on him if he's avaliable.

If the Oilers want Murray, they could gamble on taking him at #5 and trade the #1 overall to the Leafs. Burke has never been shy about making big moves (Sedins, for example) and with their organizational depth they might have some useful talent to add to the mix. I just don't see Yakupov available at #3 but who knows
