With the youth on the Canadiens, having leadership is important, and Kent Hughes will unfortunately have to part ways with veterans to make room for the young players.

Experience often leads to leadership in most cases, but for others, like captain Nick Suzuki, it comes naturally.
Indeed, Suzuki is an ideal candidate for the captaincy of the Montreal Canadiens, and he has proven it on and off the ice since the beginning of his career.
However, as mentioned by Michael Matheson, it takes a team effort for the team to stand strong. Everyone needs to contribute to leadership.
When asked about the young leaders in the group, particularly who stands out the most, the defenseman named a name that we didn't expect.
Of course, Nick Suzuki is still considered young, but the other player he mentioned is a Kent Hughes acquisition, Kirby Dach.
According to Matheson, it's incredible how many games the Canadiens would have won with him in the lineup this year.
He also mentioned that Dach's off-ice leadership qualities are striking. Personally, I have no doubt about that, as he has been very involved throughout the season, attending practices and games, even though he only played in one and a half games.
A really interesting interview, with Guillaume Latendresse, Maxim Lapierre, and Michael Matheson.
