Now that Jayden Struble has signed his first professional contract with the Canadiens, there are suddenly a lot of people in the hierarchy of left-handed defenders. The former Northeastern University will have a lot to do to stand out from his peers, first with the Laval Rocket, then with the Habs in a few months or even a few years. Our journalists Guillaume Lefrançois and Simon-Olivier Lorange discuss it with Jérémie Rainville and Antoine Roussel, from 98.5 FM.
The panelists also wonder if the current defense of the Canadiens will hold up until the end of the season, if a Drouin-Gurianov duo is promising and if checking at the center of the ice should still be allowed. We also look at the pressure faced by young players who reach the NHL, in connection with the return to play of Samuel Poulin.
