When we try to describe a young player, we often compare him to an existing player, to show what potential he has.

Among the CH's top prospects, the comparisons are quite flattering. Let's just say that if half of them become as good as their comparators, the Habs will have quite a future.
Montreal Canadiens top prospects + comparable player if they reach their potential:

1. Juraj Slafkovsky ~ Matthew Tkachuk

2. Lane Hutson ~ Quinn Hughes

3. David Reinbacher ~ Moritz Seider

4. Kaiden Guhle ~ Jaccob Slavin

5. Joshua Roy ~ Ondrej Palat

6. Logan Mailloux ~ Jeff Petry

This comes from an observer, who makes it clear "if they reach their full potential". Just with these 6 players, we have a very solid top 4 defense, plus a good offensive duo.
In the cases of Lane Hutson and David Reinbacher, everyone will agree with these comparisons. On the other hand, Slafkovsky's game lacks a lot of fire to reach a level similar to that of Tkachuk.
