2. Mikhail Sergachev: 174 career points

Remember how the Habs have never really had a good puck moving defensemen on the left side and have struggled to find a quarterback for their power play for years? Yeah, me neither.

One of the best picks ever made by Bergevin was in 2016 when he nabbed Mikhail Sergachev with the 9th overall pick. Great pick, but the trade a year later that sent him to Tampa Bay for Jonathan Drouin has been widely disliked in Montreal.

The big, Russian defender has consistently put up between 30 and 40 points for the Lightning while playing a bit of a sheltered role on a team that includes Victor Hedman and Ryan McDonagh on the left side of its defence.

He is 23 years old and now has 174 career points, all with the Lightning, in 362 career games, all but four with the Lightning. There is no question he would have been a good fit on a pairing with Shea Weber for the past number of years.

His career high is 40 points from his rookie season in 2017-18, but he had 30 points in 56 games in 2020-21. He has also helped the Lightning win the past two Stanley Cups.
