Draft History - 1969 to present

Just for fun I thought I'd have a look the history of Habs first round
picks - why do I do this to myself?

I knew the 80's were a loss but you know something? From about 76 up to
2001 I count about 5 years where a decent first round selection was
made. Out of 25 years, the best the scouts of that era could come up
with was 5 decent selections. Not a game breaker in the bunch. If any of
us had a performance this poor in our jobs we'd all be fired. I was
amazed at how poor the selections have been since about 76 up until
about 2000. It reads like a list of career has-beens. Jesus they would
have been better off drawing names out of a hat. Seriously. Are all
scouts this poor at picking talent?

Of course its too early to predict how the class of 2002 and 2003 will
do but the outlook is promising.
