This isn't a new phenomena. Look at where Norris winners are drafted. Only 4 players (Niedermayer, Pronger, Doughty and Hedman) were top 10 picks amongst the winners in the last 20 years.
Right now, Habs have 10 picks in the 2019 draft.
I'd take a C with our first pick... this draft could have 7 or 8 of the top 10 as Cs. Its really C heavy.
I'd use both my second rounders on Defencemen, plus a bunch of the later picks.
Habs could potentially pick up a D prospect with their trade deadline dumps, or with even more picks they get at the deadline too.
