2005 could be our best draft ever !!

Ok, I know its a bit soon but I were looking at 2005 draft results and I came to the conclusion that 2005 could be our best draft ever, well at least our best draft in those past 30 years...

I wont talk about the players we COULD have pick but the one that we pick. First of all, thanks to the lottery that let us draft 5th overall...


1st round we pick CAREY PRICE. We all know the big talent Carey Price have, he's likely to be number.1 goaltender at next WJC and if it wasnt of Tri-City being a bad team, Price may have better reputation on those boards. I only saw 4 or 6 games of his games but the guy have talent for sure and seems to have a head on his shoulders and that good.
Potential : Franchise goaltender

We made what could be steal of the draft in 2nd round when we trade up to select Quebec-native forward Guillaume Latendresse. Guy miss the cut by a hair at last camp and he's definitely one of our best prospects, maybe the power forward we wait for for years..
Potential : 35 goals scorer power forward

4th round we select Mikus who his, imo, between boom & bust. The fact that he's gonna play in N/A next year (especially near all our coaching, scouting staff in Chicoutimi) is a very good thing. A good season can mean a LOT in his case.
Potential : Too soon to say

Mathieu Aubin he's the 2nd quebecer we select... he have been pick to play in Top Prospect Game in CHL 2 or 3 years ago and do pretty well in the Q... he's a project who may play with Hamilton next year
Potential : 3rd or 4th line centre ?

Matt D'Agostini
I never saw him play but he was named on second all-rookies team at his 1st year at Guelph in the OHL and ends up in top 20 scoring at his 2nd year... I dont know much about him but he look like a small but speedy forward with good defensive skill... Tomas Plekanec anyone ?
Potential : Dont know enough about him to say but look like a very solid pick

Sergei Kostitsyn
Ends up 2nd for rookie of the year award in OHL behind Tavares.. A little spitfire ! I remember seeing him play one or two times and, gosh, he's a little spitfire ! Wicked shot (not as good as his brother one but still), good speed... Big upside !
Potential : Guy have BIG upside for sure.. top 6 guy for sure.

Phillipe Paquet
Well, it's an « extra » round pick (i think its about a compensation given to us for losing langdon to UFA or something) so if he bust it wont be a big lost but he sure look like a solid bottom-pairing guy but his college coach Dan Donato seems REALLY high on the guy.. just look at his talent analysis : http://hockeysfuture.com/prospect/philippe_paquet
Potential : A solid mixture of Chris Pronger, Bobby Orr & Andreï Markov.

Euhh ? Good draft, yeah, but better no !

1979
27 D Gaston Gingras
37 F Mats Naslund
43 D Craig Levie
44 C Guy Carbonneau
58 G Rick Wamsley
79 L Dave Orleski
100 R Yvan Joly
121 G Greg Moffett

Naslund was one of the best player of the team in that era. Carbonneau everybody knows was a amazing 2-way. Gaston Gingras was a good defence. That guy love the game of hockey he did a return in 98-99 for play in ECHL at 40, got great NHL career with habs and Leafs... Too bad he was injury prone.


1984
5 D Petr Svoboda
8 L Shayne Corson
29 L Stephane Richer
51 G Patrick Roy
54 R Graeme Bonar
65 Lee Brodeur
95 Gerry Johannson
116 C Jim Nesich
137 D Scott MacTavish
158 C Brad McCaughey
179 Eric Demers
199 D Ron Annear
220 David Tanner
240 G Troy Crosby

Did I got to say something about that ? Everybody know about Patrick Roy, Stephane Richer with two 50 goals season, five time 30 goals and twelve time 20 goals. Svoboda was very good when he was playinf for Montreal. First era of Corson in Montreal was great, he was good player.


1987
17 C Andrew Cassels
33 L John LeClair
38 D Eric Desjardins
44 D Mathieu Schneider
58 G Francois Gravel
80 D Kris Miller
101 Steve McCool
122 G Les Kuntar
143 L Robert Kelley
164 Will Geist
185 Eric Tremblay
206 D Barry McKinlay
227 R Ed Ronan
248 Bryan Herring

Andre Cassels, LeClair who another 50 goals dude, Dejardins awesome defence, Scheinder still got a great offensive production.



1998
16 C Eric Chouinard
45 C Mike Ribeiro
75 D Francois Beauchemin
132 R Andre Bashkirov
152 L Gordie Dwyer
162 . Andrei Markov
189 D Andrei Kruchinin
201 L Craig Murray
216 L Michael Ryder
247 R Darcy Harris

Yeah the first rounder suck, but Ribeiro hit 65 and 51 pts last 2 seasons, Beauchemin did very well at Anaheim, Andrei Markov is our #1 d-man and a very very good one, Michael Ryder made 55 goals in 2 seasons, another great late pick.


2001
7 D Mike Komisarek
25 R Alexander Perezhogin
37 W Duncan Milroy
71 C Tomas Plekanec
109 D Martti Jarventie
171 C Eric Himelfarb
203 D Andrew Archer
266 W Viktor Ujcik

I don't know for you guy but, Komisarek seems to be a futur solid #2 d-man, shutdown already, may be a little upside offensive but, he's already good on pressure. Plekanec value is high, he can play the second line, but he's a great PK players and got decent offensive skillz. Same as Perezhogin.


So after may be your 2005 come close...

I think we should wait till AT LEAST one of those players does anything in his career, before using a big word like EVER to define it.

As of right now, 1984, 1987 & 2001 are light-years ahead ...

I have very high hopes for 2005..Aubin, D'Agostini and Kostitsyn have been good surprises so far. Good drafting is the key. I think the lower round are more important than the first 2 rounds. A good drafting team will squeeze out whatever value they can in the lower rounds like montreal has in the past few years.

The chances are extremelly slim that this draft turns out better than 1971 with Lafleur and Robinson and 1984 with Roy Corson Svoboda and Richer.

Well, in his defense he did say 30 years. While that doesn't rule out the superb 1984 draft and others pointed out before, it does leave out 1971. (2006-30=1976 ) .

Let's postpone the coronation for a few years.

Even the wine experts at times have been too enthusiastic about new vintages.
