I think a 4th is absolutely pushing it. A 5th is the best we can reasonably hope for which is what the Habs paid originally. Kind of will depend on the market for a 4th line vet centerman. I mean, its not like the Habs are the only ones who have a guy like that available..... plus as decent as Thompson has been, let's not exaggerate either. He's a 4th liner in Montreal and more than likely 4th line/13th forward depth guy on a contender...
It could very well be a 6th or a 7th or a D prospect though so I'm not sure whats the point of saying that in your description?
