    Since 2005, here are Montreal's 1st round busts:

    He only ever played 2 AHL games and no NHL games. He is currently playing in the DEL and is producing average stats.

    Available players after him
    : Claude Giroux, Semyon Varlamov, Nick Foligno, Michal Neuvirth, Jamie McGinn, Jeff Petry, Milan Lucic, Steve Mason, Brad Marchand, James Reimer, Matt Beleskey, Leo Komarov

    Leblanc was a promising prospect, putting up good stats with Harvard and the Montreal Juniors, as well as participating in the IIHF junior tournament in 2011, getting 7 PTS in 7 games. Unfortunately, after a good first season in the AHL, Leblanc has continually declined. At age 25, he is now retired from professional hockey.

    Available players after him:
    Chris Kreider, Kyle Palmieri, Ryan O'Reilly, Jakob Silfverberg, Robin Lehner, Dmitry Orlov, Tomas Tatar, Tyson Barrie, Reily Smith, Mike Hoffman, Erik Haula
    Tinordi always looked good during pre-season. He was a big, strong, hard-hitting defensive defenceman and could of had a role on the team if he were managed well. Unfortunately, "managing well" is not Montreal's specialty. He was always sent down or scratched in favor of Emelin, who is about as talented. In January, he was traded in a three-way deal for Victor Bartley and John Scott, who were both released this offseason. So Montreal got nothing for the young defenseman, who seems to have capped off and who was suspended for illegal performance-enhancing drugs a few weeks after the trade...

    Available players after him:
    Evgeny Kuznetsov, Charlie Coyle, Brock Nelson, Justin Faulk, Tyler Toffoli, Joonas Donskoi, John Klingberg, Petr Mrazek, Brendan Gallagher, Mark Stone, Frederik Anderson
    And I just thought I'd point out that even though most of us list the available players that our team could've had, they would all have developed differently if they were with our team and they probably wouldn't be as good as they are in real ife.

    Glad you understand that players don't develop like they do in NHL 17

    :lol I understand the McDonagh thing but he isn't a bust, Gomez was a bust for us :lol . McDonagh would be so nice to have in Montreal right now to play with Weber!

    Yeah. McDonagh is far from being a bust, but I just wanted to include that for shits and giggles.

    Our first rounders suck but our 4-7th rounders are amazing.

    yeah. I think that Hainsey guy was pretty good. There was also Leblanc, how can you forget about that stud?

    yeah and Mike Millbury and the other guys who ranked him there are right. He's absolute dogshit. Just compare him to actual elite goalies like Rick DiPietro and he is completely dwarfed :p
