Now that the draft is behind us, we are looking ahead to the next NHL season, but above all, the evolution of the talent pool of NHL teams, including the Canadiens.

In the world of advanced statistics, there is a very interesting tool that has been proving itself for many years, and that is Byron Bader's Hockey Prospecting, which has become a reference in talent assessment and career projection for the league's prospects.

His tool is even used by NHL teams who take advantage of his services to complete their analysis and evaluation of tomorrow's young talents.

Today, Bader has published his ranking of the best prospect banks in the National League. Considering that the Tricolore is in rebuild mode, it is definitely very interesting to know where the fruits of the club's work stand in comparison to the rest of the teams.


Great news for Canadien fans, the organization's pool of young players ranks second in the league, behind the Columbus Blue Jackets, but ahead of the Philadelphia Flyers, Anaheim Ducks, and Buffalo Sabres, who make up the rest of the top-5.


As Bader mentions in his comments, even though the CH lacks elite talent in its prospect bank, the fact that the club has the best depth of players with the potential to play in the NHL makes up for this evaluation category.

In his eyes, David Reinbacher, Juraj Slafkovsky, Kaiden Guhle, Lane Hutson, and Justin Barron make up the top-5 best prospects of the club. He adds that there are nearly thirty players belonging to the Canadiens who could break into the big league.


Looking at this ranking, are you excited about the future of the Montreal Canadiens?
