Will tomorrow's draft bring the Canadiens an impact player like Alex Galchenyuk?

This sobering list by is what brought me back to reality.

The Canadiens’ website put together a list of the Top 10 No. 25 draft picks, which went like this:

No. 10 – Marc Denis, 1995, Colorado

No. 9 – Patrik Berglund, 2006, St. Louis

No. 8 – Chris Simon, 1990, Philadelphia

No. 7 – Gilles Gilbert, 1969, Minnesota

No. 6 – Todd Gill, 1984, Toronto

No. 5 – Tomas Jonsson, 1979, New York Islanders

No. 4 – Brenden Morrow, 1997, Dallas

No. 3 – Cam Ward, 2002, Carolina

No. 2 – Mike Murphy, 1970, New York Rangers

No. 1 – Mark Howe, 1974, Boston

Sure, a few picks in the second round are nice, but we need to keep our expectations in line.  Looking at the kind of players on this list, we shouldn't get too jazzed up about tomorrow.  If we can find an Yvon Lambert or Mike McPhee, maybe a Craig Ludwig or Eric Desjardins, we should be very happy.
