With the Montreal Canadiens elimination in the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs at the hands of the Philadelphia Flyers settling in, I think now’s as good a time as any to start looking forward to the future of this team for 2020-2021, the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, the NHL 2020 Free Agent Frenzy, and so on. With all the prospects, trade rumours, speculation, and free agent rumours in store, there’s a lot to talk about with this team moving forward.

How will they handle core forward assets like Max Domi, Phillip Danault, Tomas Tatar, and Brendan Gallagher? How good will Nick Suzuki and Jesperi Kotkaniemi be? What’s next for Alexander Romanov, Cole Caufield, Mattias Norlinder, Cayden Primeau, Ryan Poehling, and other Habs top prospects? Who will the Habs draft and/or sign? There’s a lot to talk about here, and this video is the transition from the Flyers elimination, to all that.
