Would be a good outcome, imho. Too much parity among the forwards whereas Murray seems to be the consensus #1 d-man. Although, guys have been closing the gap with the pre-draft fervor approaching.
This is pretty much my thinking as well. We have no idea which of the forwards will break out in the NHL. Murray is the consensus top D-man.

What if Habs brass doesn't think that Grigo has what it takes to be a #1 C?
What if they feel there is too much risk with Galchenyuk's knee?

Do we take the next best C after that? What if they feel Teuvo Teräväinen is too small?

Do we keep going down the list for centers, or do we take Murray, who maybe they believe has a 90% chance of being a Norris candidate in 5 years.

BPA. Always. And never take a goalie in the top 10, even if it worked out with Price.

Murray had injuries too.

Weak argument I think.

He had an injury, came back from it and played well, and did very well at the combine. But we're still going to act like he's limping and might have to be amputated?

These were not meant to be arguments, they were meant to be hypothetical situations.

We do not know what the Habs management actually think. Not for another day at least.

Sorry, was that directed at me?

There was an article in the Globe and Mail today that talked about how many teams thought Galchenyuk was the most impressive at the combine, despite having suffered probably the most serious injury out of all the top prospects. It also talked about his incredible work ethic and his desire to stay in North America and play in the NHL. If Galchenyuk's available, the Habs have to take him.

EDIT: Were you talking about Galchenyuk or Murray?

No, in general, when talking about Galchenyuk. It was a hyperbole on my part though.

I personally feel that Forsberg and Galchenyuk are better then Murray. I'd say no.

I don't think they can go wrong with Galchenyuk or Forsberg since at least one of those two will still be available. However, if Murray is not yet picked and if Timmins determines that he's the BPA, then they should pick Murray.

I hope that Timmins honestly thinks that whichever one of Galchenyuk or Forsberg is available is the BPA when #3 comes up, because the best of both worlds is to pick someone who is both BPA and fills the biggest need.

Not really, no. He and Dumba are about equal among the scouting services.

Murray could easily be on the board at #5.

If the Oilers don't take Murray, Columbus does. I don't think the Habs will get a shot at Murray.

We only want Galchenyuk. The Oilers better take Yakupov and leave Murray to CBJ.
