Shuperman, Montreal was the only team of the original six and before that were able to double pick in the draft. They had first right to any player out of quebec plus they were able to pick out of the overall draft. The other original six teams did not have that luxury. Most of the players that played on the last montreal dynasty were a result of that double picking or trades they made from that era. Montreal won two cups since... Not bad but not one of the best compared to other teams. In Response to Re: Lucic pounded into next week. :
