Now that the dust has completely settled following the 2023 NHL Draft, it's always interesting to come back and reflect on what decisions we would have made if we were in the decision-makers' shoes.

This is precisely what the excellent PM Perron did, who also did an incredible job with his list, in preparation for the selection session.

Check out his post:

For info, I would have made (accepted) the alleged trade between the Canadiens and the Red Wings that circulated behind the scenes. I was convinced that Dvorsky or But would be available at the 9th pick.


This would have been the transaction.

5th pick - Player the Wings wanted or Reinbacher

for

9th pick - Dalibor Dvorsky
17th pick - Gabe Perreault
+ Young defenseman or goaltender

What about you?

This could indeed have been an interesting transaction, but we also don't have the guarantee that Perreault and Dvorsky could have become better players (even combined) than David Reinbacher will be for the Montreal Canadiens.

Let's give it a chance. We have loved what we have seen from the youngster in the past few hours and Reinbacher seems to be an extremely talented and promising young man.
