The Montreal Canadiens are in the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff race, and there a number of ways in which the 2013-14 season could play out. Yet no matter how this year ends, the future is promising for the Habs.

The current Montreal roster is a true mix of young and old, ranging from 20-year-old Alex Galchenyuk to 38-year-old Francis Bouillon. Its average age of 28.3 ranks it as the fifth-oldest team in the league, according to NHL Numbers.

This could be alarming to some, but it's important to remember that Montreal's most talented players are still very young. Carey Price, Max Pacioretty, P.K. Subban, Brendan Gallagher and Galchenyuk are all still under the age of 27. That's a pretty solid core to move forward with. 

Aside from the players, there are a few other reasons, such as cap space and the prospect pool, that make Montreal's future bright. 

Here are the five most promising signs for the Montreal Canadiens' future.
