One thing that seems very solid with the Montreal Canadiens is their defensive prospect pool.

Some say that defense wins championships, and that's exactly the rebuilding plan for the organization.

In addition to Kaiden Guhle, Justin Barron, Jordan Harris, and Arber Xhekaj, who are promising defensemen with the main club, there are several high-quality prospects in the Canadiens' pipeline who could join this excellent core sooner rather than later.

We can think of David Reinbacher, Lane Hutson, Logan Mailloux, but also the more underrated players like Adam Engstrom, William Trudeau, and Jayden Struble.


Recently, the former Canadiens scout, Grant McCagg, caused a huge surprise on Twitter by revealing his top 5 prospects for the team.

He ranked Mailloux at the top of the Canadiens' prospects, ahead of David Reinbacher and Lane Hutson. Wow!

But McCagg went even further by raising the question of whether the Canadiens might have found their new "Big Three" with Mailloux, Reinbacher, and Hutson, comparing the potential of these three players with the legendary trio of Larry Robinson, Serge Savard, and Guy Lapointe.

" Can Mailloux, Reinbacher and Hutson one day be Montreal's top defence trio since Robinson, Savard and Lapointe?"

Given the individual potential of each player, it's clear that there is considerable talent coming up with the team. However, to even imagine if McCagg's point comes even remotely close to what the "Big Three" represented for the Canadiens in the past, it would be absolutely mind-blowing!

Even more astonishing is that we haven't even mentioned Guhle, Barron, Harris, and Xhekaj, who are also expected to be part of this defensive brigade.

The future blue line of the Canadiens will undoubtedly be one of the strongest in the National Hockey League in a few years.
