Montreal collecting draft picks for a better tomorrow
If you look at it from an appropriate angle and squint a little there's a natural symmetry to the deal that netted a 2013 second-rounder for erstwhile Montreal Canadiens winger Andrei Kostitsyn.

This story maybe true and sound good...But the same problem still exists...BAD SCOUTS LEAD TO BAD CHOICES....
This teams Scouts could have the 1st round 1st pick and still F*ck it up.
Sparty...you must know who some of these scouts are or how to find out their backgrounds....
Jesus ..I can go to any rink and pick out 3 of the best kids in 10 minutes....Whats the deal!!!!
I dont know how much they get paid....But what a Gig.....

Defenceman Jim Benning was an excellent playmaker whose success was built on his superior passing skills and range of vision on the ice. He was neither a fast skater nor a physical player, but he managed to utilize his strengths remarkably well in junior and effectively in the NHL. The native of Edmonton, Alberta was one of the top-scoring blueliners in the history of the WHL. After scoring 71 points in 45 games for the Fort Saskatchewan Traders of the AJHL, Benning joined the Portland Winter Hawks. He averaged a point per game in 1979-80 and then led the league with 111 assists in 1980-81. He was claimed sixth overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Entry Draft and appeared set for a fine NHL career. It was Benning's misfortune to be selected by Toronto during this period. He was rushed to the NHL in 1981-82 and lost much of his confidence while playing on one of the league's sad sack teams. He showed flashes of potential, registering 24 assists, but would have been better off developing in the minors. Benning spent five years in Toronto and had a career best 51 points in 1983-84. In December 1986, he and Dan Hodgson were sent to the Vancouver Canucks in a trade for veteran Rick Lanz. Benning took fewer chances on the West Coast, but he became a more complete player. He was a mainstay on the team when it nearly upset the eventual Stanley Cup champion Calgary Flames in the opening round of the 1988-89 post-season. Benning spent one more year in Vancouver before spending the 1990-91 schedule with the Milwaukee Admirals of the IHL. He retired in 1992 after playing 18 games with Varese in the Italian League.

I agree, seeing it in writting makes it even harder to understand except when you look at what rejean Houle did as well as Serge savard, then it make a bit more sense, how we got to this point that is.
