Montreal has usually gone outside the system to build their roster, but may need to look inward in order to solve their recent woes.
The key to turning around the Canadiens is the development of Milwaukee native Galchenyuk, Sweden’s Collberg and Strathroy, Ontario’s Beaulieu.
Galchenyuk had a knee injury while playing with Sarnia (OHL) last season, but participated in all six of their playoff games.
Collberg was ranked third among European skaters in Central Scouting’s final rankings and Beaulieu was a member of that dynasty in Saint John, NB.
There are a lot of talented prospects in Montreal’s system. Whether or not they make an impact in the league will determine if the Habs turn things around in the near future.
