Though he might find that 24 hours are insufficient for one day, if there’s one thing Louis always fits into his busy schedule, it’s the Canadiens. That’s why it’s no surprise to have seen some of his favorite players making guest appearances on some of his recent projects.

MONTREAL — The Montreal Canadiens’ prospect pool has decent depth but lacks top-end talent.

The main reason is the Canadiens have not picked earlier than 25th in each of the past three NHL Drafts, and they did not have a second-round pick in either of the past two.

As a result, the Canadiens lack an elite prospect, but they have several players who have the potential to become solid NHL contributors.
