Once again, Kent Hughes has managed to make the most of a trade by sending Casey DeSmith to Vancouver in exchange for Tanner Pearson and a 3rd round pick in 2025. Just getting a prospect is a win.

As for Pearson, his arrival seems to disrupt the plans for developing the young players. He could definitely block a spot, which are already in short supply. However, according to Renaud Lavoie, it's not set in stone.
«Tanner Pearson better have a strong training camp. I don't think this guy will stand in the way of the young players' progress. He will have to prove that he deserves a spot in the Canadiens' lineup and that he's ready for this training camp.»

«If there's another player, left or right, who is better than him and we need to put him on waivers, we will.»
-Renaud Lavoie

Anyway, Pearson isn't yet at 100%, having been injured for most of the last season due to a hand infection. His career was even in jeopardy. So for the fans who are worried and believe that his arrival will block a young player, rest assured that it's far from a sure thing.
