Here’s why the chances of seeing the Canadian advance to the draft are slim

As we have known for a few days, the Canadian will once again have the 5th pick in the next NHL draft which will take place on June 28 and 29 in Las Vegas.

Last year, Kent Hughes had selected David Reinbacher at the same position and the year before he had the chance to draft first and chose Juraj Slafkovsky.

This year, the unanimous first choice is Macklin Celebrini, but subsequently, there is a group of several players who have very similar potential according to most experts.

Mathias Brunet has the same opinion and believes that there is not a significant enough gap between the other players who will form the top-10 of the draft to justify paying to advance.

He’s not wrong, but one important thing to consider is the need for a particular position.

For example, if the Blue Jackets’ turn comes in 4th place and one of Cayden Lindstrom Or Ivan Demidov is still available, we believe it would make sense for the Canadiens to offer something interesting enough to the Jackets to move up one position and thus choose the forward they want.

That said, we will have a very exciting draft in a few weeks!
