The Rookie Tournament is in full swing in Buffalo. We will have the chance to see the Tricolore's top prospects play on different platforms starting tomorrow.

During a lunchtime visit to La Poche Bleue, Joël Bouchard was kind enough to comment on the Habs' lineup for this tournament. To say that he finds the line-up strong would be an understatement:
« I just want to be very clear. The Canadiens roster for the rookie camp, I've never seen a roster like that. I'm not even talking about just the Canadiens, I'm talking about the other teams that we played against. Belleville was very strong and there was Toronto. But what I see as a line-up, it's nothing like that. You don't have a lot of guest players, almost all the players are out of the National League or confirmed in the American League.»

Of course, Joel has his preferences. Despite the very talented pool of young players that the CH has, he is very fond of one player in particular:
« My personal player is Kaiden Guhle. Even before the draft, I would get up every morning and have a coffee and watch videos of the prospects while we were on break with the pandemic. All the players in this draft I know because I've seen four or five games of each one. The guy I wanted, without even talking to the Canadiens, was Guhle. I love him. It's rare to find players like him.»

- Joël Bouchard

We don't always realize it, but the Canadiens new generation is really excellent. It will be nice for a long time to come in Montreal when all of them are ready to play at the NHL level.
