Montreal had 5 first rounders in 1974; don't know if that's the record though.
Out of those 5 only got 2 decent players. Shows even the immortal Sam Pollock wasn't that good at drafting. He passed on a lot of good talent like Trottier and Gare. Secret to his success he had so many picks hard not hit on some of them.
Sam Pollock was a iconic Gm but his drafting in early rounds were off a liitle Ill start in 1970.1.Ray Martinuik-Flin Flon 2.Chuck Lefley-Canada National team 3.Steve Caryle-Red Dear.1971.Lafleur 2.Chuck Ansason-Flin Flon 3.Murray Wilson-Ottawa 1972.Shutt-Toronto 2.Larouque-Ottawa 3.Dave Garner-Toronto 1973-Gainey-Peterborough 2.Glen Goldup -Toronto.3.Petter Marrin-Toronto 1974-1.Cam Conner-Flin Flon 2.Risebrough-Kitchener 3.Chartraw-Kitchener 1975-1.Robin Sadler-Edmonton 2.Mondou-Montreal Jrs 3.Englom-Univ.Wisconsin 1976 1.Peter Lee-Ottawa 2.Rod Schutt-Sudbury 3.Bruce Baker-Ottawa 1977.1.Napier-Birmingham 2.Dupont-Montreal Jrs 3.Languay-New Hampshire university 1978-1.Geoffrion-Cornwall 2.Hunter-Sudbury 3.Dale Yakiwchuk-Portland Winter Hawks. So Sam drafting was good but not great in early round picks.He did steal some good picks in late rounds but nothing great
