    Similarly, for us to drop to 7th (8% chance), it would mean that all lottery wins would have been by teams 5-15....which is also rather impossible. That also means Buffalo-Ottawa-Arizona drop to 4-5-6th...can’t see it happening

    So we ain’t drafting 4th or 7th...probably 5th-6th, or with luck top 3...
    Well done, i am thinking 5th.

    He wont be around when you want him. We probably will not have a chance at getting him anyways

    But, if you want to swing for the fences and try to hit a homerun, you go for Wahlstrom over him.
    Elite goaltending will hide a lot of a bad team's flaws and make them look a lot better than they truly are. That's why Carey Price is the single most important player to his team in the NHL.

    For upside scoring yes.... If you want an all round 2 way SOB BK is your guy .

    I see maybe a tougher Landeskog as his ceiling

    I like Tkachuk a lot, I don't think his ceiling is that low. I think he has 1st line potential.

    The biggest challenge MB will have is to try and finagle himself another 1st rounder in the latter half of the first round (15-31) as this is something that would help tremendously in starting to infuse some higher end talent in the prospect pool.
    Go Habs Go!

    If the odds play out as expected it would mean that no team would draft 1st overall. Every team is fighting the odds, not just Montreal.

    Tkachuk could very well be around 4-7. He's a low upside pick.

    However, he fits the low upside, meathead and character criteria that is so important to MB/CJ. I can almost guarantee that if he's available the Habs will draft them (unless they draft top 3).

    Zadina is a concensous top 3 pick. Tkachuk isn't.
