<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Lenny7</b></div><div>Suzuki is your best C prospect. *Might* work out value-wise if this is the move that you think gets you into the playoffs, but if it doesn't, and that pick is top 10, I think you'd regret it pretty quickly (Especially in such a deep draft).
It's never a bad thing to upgrade like this, but between Domi and Mantha (both of whom are RFA's looking for new contracts this offseason), you're going to end up spending a whollllleeeee lot of money. Both likely end up with $6.5 per year (or more).
Habs have around $63 mil spent next year (maybe slightly more, it was just a quick calculation), so add $13 mil (low ball), which gets you to $76, plus Mete (Maybe $4/3 or something like that? Not really sure), which gets you to $80 mil, with a few extra guys to sign. Might be tough, especially since adding a top pairing LD *Should* be the priority...</div></div>
The pick would be top 10 protect of course

At the same time, we don,t really need a ton of great prospects/picks... We already have a young team with young guns coming in... With Caufield, Olofsson, Norlinder, Romanov, Harris, Strubble, Primeau, Ylonen and the guy we'll draft in the first round, we good
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Price_is_the_goat</b></div><div>they're gonna make the playoffs, so i doubt they draft that high</div></div>
I hope they won't. Another great pick would make the futur even brighter... FLA, TB, TOR, BOS, BUF, PHI, PIT, WAS, CAR and NYI are all better teams than MTL. So, no playoffs on paper. With Drouin, KK, Mete and Byron out of the lineup, it won't help
