The identities of two players targeted by the Canadiens at the draft have been revealed.

With the 5th overall pick, the Montreal Canadiens select....

We'll hear those words live from Nashville in just over two weeks. While the logical choice for Kent Hughes (Will Smith) is not guaranteed to be available, a source has just named two players who would be in the team's sights.

These would be defender David Reinbacher and forward Ryan Leonard.




Hughes called Reinbacher the best defenseman available this draft, and Leonard comparable to the Tkachuk brothers. These are fine statements from the GM, who would pass right over the Matvei Michkov phenomenon.



Personally, after hearing Kent Hughes speak at the Combine, I can't believe he'd go straight through and not select Matvei Michkov. He mentioned himself loud and clear that he would select the most talented player and clearly, the Russian is superior, talent-wise.
