well, confirms bergevin/timmins had Alex 1st overall no matter what, wow

i like how he compliments the galchenyuk,collberg, and thrower picks (no a mention of the bozon pick) but im even more impressed with his vail and hudon mentions for top value/position

it sounds like we got some serious guys here

Why even bother having a scouting staff anymore?

Just pick magazines' top ranked prospects still on the board at every pick and voilà, you have an amazing draft!

Well, you have an amazing draft according to those magazines at least...

I love how Timmins had a drafting strategy that is essentially counter-sentiment. By heavily drafting Ds in the past forward-rich years, he have been able to pick awesome players when the sentiment is Defense-rich.

A true contrarian

It's true that that's really the only metric by which we're judging the Habs draft a success. But there also seems to be a general truth that we went looking for forwards with skill (and reasonable size) in a year that placed abnormally low value on those considerations (skilled forwards, especially those 6'0 and under). Thus with our very top pick we were able to get the only center rated in the top ten (and I FIRMLY believe he would have gone early in the first if we hadn't picked him. No way Gally got past Toronto IMO.) Then we were able to grab a winger with enormous upside early in the second round, largely because such an abnormal number of d went in the first.

The writer seems to have a crush on Anton Slepyshev who didn't get draft and plays in the KHL.
GP:39 G:4 A:3 Pts:7 PIM:2 +/-:-8. He probably played on the 4th line the whole season.

So did Collberg, with zero points to show for it. 17-18 year old in a pretty elite men's league.
