I just want to remind all of you that if Toronto ends up picking before the Habs and then they pick the exact player we want, well just how anger will you be that the Habs did NOT dump that last game.
What if it's found out that Burke cut a deal with Molson. That the Habs win that last game allowing Toronto to move up to the bottom 5 for a much better pick, then Burke stabs Molson in the back and steals our player right from under Molson's nose.
I don;t think this can happen we can't pick more than one spot lower than 3rd.
With the luck we've had this year, I fully expect us to get ****ed in the ass and get bumped.
Because life hates the 2011-2012 canadiens that's why...
Honestly, I'm not particularly worried about getting bumped. Even if we do, we get the 4th pick at worst so we get one of the Big 4 so it's pretty much a "can't miss" scenario from what I can tell. Also, although this has been mentioned in the past, while Yakupov is the consensus #1, he's also for all practical purposes 1 year older than Grigs (May Bday), Gally (July Bday) and Forsberg (June or July Bday, forget which). Any way you look at it Yak (Bday Oct) has had one full season more to develop than the other 3 so you really would have to wait until after next season and THEN compare those 3 with Yak today. Just saying...
