Fans have a right to disagree with the Canadiens' draft selections, especially in the 1st round. The logical choice isn't always the one taken by team management, and that creates a lot of frustration.

Nevertheless, although only time will tell if the CH staff were wrong, they also make some very good moves, and that's worth noting.
Young defenseman Bogdan Konyushkov was, according to many observers, quite a 4th-round selection by the Habs. So much so that Marc Dumont, former CH content creator, sees him in the top 6 in a few years in Montreal.
First of all, see what he's capable of.

Getting back to Dumont, he made a projection of what he thinks could make up the Habs' top 6 defensemen when the youngsters mature.
First pairing: Lane Hutson - David Reinbacher

Second pair: Adam Engstrom - Kaiden Guhle

Third pair: Jordan Harris - Bogdan Konyushkov

Extras: Logan Mailloux, William Trudeau

As you'd expect, Arber Xhekaj's absence is the talk of the town, and so is Mailloux as the 7th defenseman. Here's what Dumont had to say about this prediction.
"I don't think Jayden Struble will make the jump to the NHL, and I also assume they'll find new lineups for players like Justin Barron, Arber Xhekaj and Johnathan Kovacevic." - Marc Dumont

In our opinion, Arber Xhekaj won't be scratched from the roster, barring a huge surprise. Also, Logan Mailloux is bound to be in the top 6, but everyone's entitled to his opinion.
