For months, or even years, people have been talking about the lack of depth in the Canadiens' offense. In fact, it's been an issue since the early 2000s, and it's time for it to change.

Kent Hughes has work to do, and it starts with the draft. However, he deemed it appropriate to select a defenseman with the 5th overall pick last year, a decision that is still contested today.
This year, many analysts and fans agree that he has no choice but to select a forward, but that might not happen.
According to reports, the Canadiens' management has just summoned defenseman Anton Silayev for an important meeting.
«This means that the Canadiens' management will have a second meeting with him. Could they seriously consider him if forwards Ivan Demidov and Cayden Lindstrom are no longer available at the Canadiens' pick?»

- Marco Normandin

Silayev is very impressive, standing at 6'7" with a dream skating ability. It's very rare for a player of his size. His skills are truly impressive, and he is built for NHL hockey.
Personally, I don't think there's any need to be alarmed by this news. Kent Hughes is playing his cards, and Silayev is expected to be a top 3 pick. The fact that he is interested in him could simply be a cover to hide his intentions and put pressure on the teams ahead.
There's also the possibility that Cayden Lindstrom and Ivan Demidov might not be available at the 5th pick, which could tempt Hughes to go with a defenseman once again.
