Two players from the Canadiens are part of a ranking that is not at all enviable, and it's rather worrisome

The Montreal Canadiens have numerous young players who are destined for a very promising future in the NHL. Among these, Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield are undoubtedly the two forwards with the most interesting potential.

Upon his arrival in Montreal, the captain of the Tricolore quickly became one of the team's best players. Only 23 years old, Suzuki is already a very complete center player, who contributes significantly on offense, while excelling in defensive territory. Despite the fact that the Habs were decimated by injuries last year, he managed to establish a new personal best with a harvest of 26 goals and 40 assists (66 points) in 82 games.

As for Cole Caufield, the 22-year-old forward has experienced a completely incredible progression since Martin St-Louis became the head coach. Indeed, the American gathered truly impressive statistics from February 9, 2022, accumulating 48 goals and 24 assists (72 points) in 83 games. Had it not been for his injury last season, he would surely have reached the 40 goal plateau, having scored 26 times in 46 games.

The two forwards have amply demonstrated that they possess qualities that make them exceptional players in the NHL. They will undoubtedly have a very important impact on the rebuilding process initiated by the management of the Montreal Canadiens. However, despite their excellent performances, the Twitter accounts DailyDoseHockey and AllHockeyCulture have included them in a rather surprising ranking.


Indeed, according to DailyDoseHockey, Nick Suzuki is ranked 6th among the most overrated players in the entire NHL, while the list published by AllHockeyCulture places Cole Caufield 3rd in the entire league!

Ouch! We weren't expecting that at all! Personally, we completely disagree with this ranking!

Do you really believe that Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield deserve to be part of the top 10 most overrated NHL players?
