Don't forget we're talking forwards here.
he won't be making the team before 2017 at least.

Dumont, Leblanc, Thomas, Bournival, Collberg, Hudon, McCarron, Andrighetto, De la Rose, Lehkonen, Reway, and then Crisp.

Yes, I have a crystal ball.

What are the odds that Holland or Bournival get some time with the big club this year?

Leblanc would be a great replacement for Gio, their playing style are similar.

Holland, close to none. Bournival, we would have to be in big injury troubles.

That's a long shot at best

Bournival was told to ''be ready'' in playoff before game 4 against Ottawa so it's a pretty good indication of how the organization think of him

I'm more curious about Hudon though

That was his "form" for the majority of his hockey career..why couldn't he recapture it? Was last year not the exception as opposed to the rule?

I expect Leblanc to bounce back.

Holland = close to none. Leblanc and Thomas have to be considered ahead of him.
Bournival = First callup at C taking for granted that Dumont makes the team. Don't know how he plays on Wing though.

I do too. I just don't expect it to happen conclusively enough in time for him to make the team out of training camp this season. It didn't seem from reviews of the development camp, for example, that he was trending towards that sort of immediate bounce back?

But give him a good chunk of time with the Bulldogs, healthy, and he'll be back. It could even still allow him to be the "next forward prospect to make the team", even if it is later next season or even the season after.

Part of me would love to see what Tinordi would look like in front of the net on the power play a la Chara. He'd, technically, be playing forward at that point.

WOW, next training camp will be amazing to watch. So many good prospects.

Next season: I think De La Rose could surprise because he's already strong and he has good size, which we kind of need! The problem is our offensive top 12 is set so we would need to move someone. Bourque? Desharnais? Gionta? In know some of you sees him as a center, but I think he could start as a RW.

Leblanc, Thomas, Dumont are expected to play some games with us but I can't really tell who will be the first to do so.

Also, Andrighetto will start the season in Hamilton because he's overrage. If he do well in Hamilton and we need goalscoring, I believe more in his chance to be called up than Holland.

In 2 years: For me, there's no doubt in my mind that Collberg & De La Rose will be in the 2014-15 lineup. Bergevin said that Collberg was almost ready today to make the big jump. If Gionta was gone, he would start the season in Montreal.

Maybe Andrighetto, Bournival and Hudon could play some games. But I think (tell me if I'm wrong) McCarron will still be in the OHL.

3 years is in a very long time so some of our offensive prospects could be moved, so I won't tell who will have a shot to make the team.

We have excess RWers now and I wouldn't be putting any centers on the RW by any means. Even for LW.. we have Bourque, Pacioretty, Prust, Moen, Collberg, Galchenyuk (who will likely be LW for another year).

De La Rose making it to be a center is a long shot. Our 4 centers AFTER this year will likely be: Galchenyuk, Plek, Eller, White... or you could put DD on third instead of Eller. So we have Dumont, De La Rose, and LeBlanc still in the prospect pool.

This is why, even if he's more ready than a lot of our prospects, I don't think De La Rose will start the 2013-14 season in MTL. Next year tho, Bourque will be gone, Collberg is a RW not a LW, Moen can play both sides, Galchenyuk should be a center. This is why the 3rd line LW spot might be available for DLR.

If Holland can bulk up then he could be a very intriguing player. I could see him having a big year.

Which is probably why we get along so well.

I'm going to say Dumont followed by Thomas.

Even worse, they are all on one side, at RW, Gionta, Briere, Gallagher are all on the ride side, heck Thomas who is most likely would be one of the first call ups is another undersized RWer

And while having 1-2 undersized players isn't a bad thing, specially Gionta, Gallagher type, you need bigger guys to complement them.
Most of the Hab forwards who played on their five consecutive Cup winners (1956-60) were under 6 feet, including the Rocket, Henri, Geoffrion, Moore, Provost, Pronovost, Goyette, Backstrom, Curry, Bonin, and Marshall (I forget the others). My memory may be faulty but I remember only Béliveau and Olmstead among the forwards as being 6'0" or taller. [I just added Ab McDonald.]

There were no 6'9 giant defenceman in the fifties

Even in the seventies, Robinson was considered really big at 6'4.
