The Canadiens have put together a number of impressive drafts over the years. I considered four of them here. It’s hard to complain about getting Mikhail Sergachev (9th overall) and Victor Mete (100th overall) where they did in 2016. The same can be said for back-to-back drafts in 2004 and 2005, which produced a combined eight players who played 300 or more NHL games: Kyle Chipchura (Round 1), Alexei Emelin (Round 3), Mikhail Grabovski (Round 5), Mark Streit (Round 9!), Carey Price (Round 1), Guillaume Latendresse (Round 2), Matt D’Agostini (Round 6), and Sergei Kostitsyn (Round 7). And yet, its their class of 2007 that is probably still the clear choice. Any time you land three bonafide NHL stars and a fourth player who will soon surpass 500 games played, you’ve knocked the draft out of the park. The Canadiens did that in 2007 by hitting on each of their three picks with Ryan McDonagh, Max Pacioretty and P.K. Subban in rounds 1 and 2 — and then they further bolstered their class by grabbing Yannick Weber in the third round. All told, the Canadiens probably drafted three of the draft’s top 10 players, without needing a top-10 pick (of which most of the draft’s other best players, including Patrick Kane, Jakub Voracek, James van Riemsdyk, and Logan Couture, all were). It may not just be the Canadiens’ best draft of the last two decades, but one of the best performances by any team.
