The worst is confirmed for the Montreal Canadiens

It's a real shame. The Habs were chasing the possibility of having two high first round picks in the next draft, not too long ago.

Indeed, in the deal that sent Ben Chiarot to the Panthers last season, Kent Hughes picked up Florida's first pick, an unprotected pick. The beginning of the season, even the first half of the campaign of Aleksander Barkov's team was well below expectations, even if a playoff participation was becoming risky for them.

A few weeks and many victories later, they are now in a position to participate in the playoffs, which is very bad news for the CH.

If the Panthers keep up the pace, the pick would definitely be off the board for a chance at Connor Bedard.



Nothing is guaranteed for Florida though, but let's just say it's starting to look like that.
