The CH had the equivalent of four 1st round picks in 2019

I don't know if you remember the 2019 draft, but personally, I was on the edge of my seat eagerly awaiting the CH's 15th-round pick and Cole Caufield's selection.

Even before the draft began, Caufield, who had scored 72 goals in 64 games in the U.S. program, was the talk of the town. Quite simply, he was already perceived as a prolific scorer, and when I heard the name Cam York taken 14th overall by the Flyers, I simply couldn't believe it. The Canadiens were finally getting their hands on their next born scorer.

The JFresh account on Twitter gets fans involved in high-profile polls. This time, nearly 90,000 people gave their opinions on the 2019 selections, and there are a few surprises.

Cole Caufield is definitely a steal in 3rd place, Kirby Dach and Alex Newhook make the top 10 and a certain Rafaël Harvey-Pinard is in 25th position.

RHP was selected in the 7th round by Marc Bergevin in 2019, which means the biggest steal of the draft. As of today, he would be a 1st-round pick.
