The Canadiens have built up a strong prospect pool, one of the best in the NHL, under Kent Hughes and the current management team who have excelled in recent drafts.

During the Marc Bergevin and Trevor Timmins era, it wasn't always smooth sailing, but towards the end, there was improvement. One significant change is that no first-round picks from 2006 to 2018 are still with the organization.
However, since 2019, every first-round pick remains part of the Canadiens, showing a promising future. These include Cole Caufield, Kaiden Guhle, Logan Mailloux, Juraj Slafkovsky, David Reinbacher, and Ivan Demidov.
Excluded from this count are Filip Mesar and Michael Hage, who were originally drafted by other teams but are still within the organization. Since 2019, the Canadiens' drafting has been flawless, with notable finds like Lane Hutson in the second round, Oliver Kapanen, Raphaël Harvey-Pinard, Cayden Primeau, and others.

A very revealing post on Canadiens prospects

A recent post has sparked significant discussion, showcasing a list of the team's top prospects from 2015. It's evident that the caliber of players is vastly different, with Jacob De la Rose once considered the best among them.
Nine years later, none of those players remain with the organization, highlighting past challenges. Comparatively, if a similar assessment were done today with prospects like Lane Hutson, Logan Mailloux, David Reinbacher, Ivan Demidov, and others, many are likely to still be in Montreal in nine years.
Despite recent struggles, the Canadiens' current top prospects include selections from the second, third, and fourth rounds, underscoring their improved scouting and development efforts.
