Should the lockout go the year, we'll probably see another lottery draft with us getting the highest odds of getting another top pick (three ping pong balls to most other team's one) and hopefully scoop up something that way. You add another elite prospect to what we already have and we should be in very good shape going forward.
Yeah only way were getting another blue chip is by the league returning and we absolutely stink up the place for 48 games, but I wont lie.... I think I could handle it ONE more time if were gonna get 1-2 great new toys....would be easier to sit thru a 48 game stinkfest then an 82 game one..

We're in need of one more surgical tank.

A 48 game season would do the trick.

We got lucky last year, in a way. This team did not deserve a 3rd last finish. Now, however, the team is even worse. For the long term success of the Canadiens, playing this season is imperative. The last lockout's 3,2,1 Ball system for the draft would royally screw us out of a top 10 pick.

Kypreos asked Bill Daly about what would happen with the draft if the season got cancelled, Daly answered he hadn't given it any thought, so at this point anything is possible for the order for the draft.

But I find it unlikely that everyone gets the same odds, ridiculous to think that LA can wind up with the 1st pick overall when their Stanley Cup team is pretty much returning intact.

There's a big difference between "deserving to" and "not supposed to", 'cause we definitely deserved to.

And yeah, IMO we need to draft another high end prospect.

Columbus got LA's pick.

This.

The lockout is going to screw us bigtime, I'm afraid. If there is a season this year, then we still have a good chance at a top-10 pick. If the lockout persists, then we literally have to pray for the lottery to go our way and get a top 10 pick.

But I think his point is still valid, in that even a SC conteder can get the first overall pick when they don't need it as much as compared to a team like Colombus.

TBH I hope they just decide to go with the 2011-2012 standings for the draft order. So basically it would be:

1st-Colombus
2nd-Edmonton
3rd-Montreal
4th-NY Islanders
5th-Toronto
etc.

There is a big difference, but you're wrong that we deserved that pick, because we didn't. Take a look at the goal differentials for last year and tell me there were only 2 teams worse than the Habs. More like 5-6 if not more.
