    Default 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    New year, new draft class.

    Craig Button's 2018 top 62, September 2017 edition: http://www.tsn.ca/craig-s-list-defen...class-1.847739

    1- Rasmus Dahlin
    2- Adam Boqvist
    3- Andrei Svechnikov
    4- Brady Tkachuk
    5- Rasmus Kupari
    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.

    My new poorly written out thoughts on this season's Montreal Canadiens.

    Three Mooseheads in the Top 15, not bad.

    Two Rasmuses in the top 5. What are the chances.

    If we aren't going to be a cap team or cup contender can price blow a knee again or something to we can grab a top 5 pick?

    This is truly the first year that i've been completely confused about the intentions or the team. Probably not gonna get Centre Ice this year.

    I can see the Habs being a lottery team this year. They are one injury (not just Price) away from being very bad this season. Even if just one of Weber, Pacioretty, Drouin, Galchenyuk or Gallagher gets hurt we will be in trouble. This team has no depth.

    Price makes this team a bubble team if anyone else gets hurt.

    Price goes down we are a lottery team.

    I hope his knee gives out.

    I'm not sure about that his year. The d-core is very weak after Weber. Price is a amazing obviously, but the serious lack of depth on defence probably can't withstand an injury to Weber.

    MB has been pumping Schlemko's tires the last 3 days. That alone shows how desperate we are.

    We are a wild card team even with a healthy lineup.

    You know it's a deep draft when MacIsaac is seen as a mid-1st round pick.

    Surprised to see so many from the Q in the first round.
