Interresting conversation about McCarron. If I understand, McCarron need to improve a lot next year, and maybe the next one too, to convince us that he can be a good NHL player.
It's telling me that the Habs don't have, for now, a lot of talented players in the prospect pool to build a future strong team like LA, Chicago, Anaheim, Boston, etc.
We have some excellent young players already in the team (Subban, Price, Galcheniuk, Paccioretty, Gallagher, and maybe Bournival as a role player), so we have a good basis. We have some good prospects almost there (Beaulieu, Tinordi, Tokasky, Pateryn). We also have some deep for the bottom 6 and no. 5-6 or 7 D (Crisp, Holland, Vail, Gregoire, Ellis, etc.) but not a lot of sure elite talents (top 6, top 4D). Some got potential (McCarron, Hudon, De La Rose, Andrighetto, Bozon, Thrower, Dietz, etc.), but they are still long shots and only time will tell if they will be good enough for the NHL, or at the best, role players.
So what do we need for the next draft? The best players availables, yes. But we definitily need top 6 talent, with size if possible, and it will probably be the same for the draft of 2015.
