The main reason is the Canadiens have not picked earlier than 25th in each of the past three NHL Drafts.MONTREAL -- The ' prospect pool has decent depth but lacks top-end talent.The main reason is the Canadiens have not picked earlier than 25th in each of the past three NHL Drafts, and they did not have a second-round pick in either of the past two http://www.fanscoyotesedge.com/louis-domingue-jersey.As a result, the Canadiens lack an elite prospect, but they have several players who have the potential to become solid NHL contributors.They were lacking in quality defensemen, and that's why the Canadiens used the No. 26 pick at the 2015 NHL Draft on of Everett of the Western Hockey League. He was the first defenseman Montreal selected in the first round since was picked 17th in 2011.Here is a look at the Canadiens' top five prospects, according to NHL.com:1. , CHow acquired: 2nd round (No. 34), 2013 NHL DraftLast season: Canadiens: 33 GP, 4-2-6; Hamilton Brendan Shinnimin Jersey, AHL: 37 GP, 6-5-11It is not easy to earn the trust of Canadiens coach as a young player, and that's what made De La Rose's ascension so remarkable last season http://www.fanscoyotesedge.com/dylan-reese-jersey. The then-19-year-old was called up to the Canadiens on Feb. 2 after center was injured; De La Rose did not play another game with Hamilton of the American Hockey League.De La Rose does not have a very high offensive ceiling, but at 6-foot-3, 207 pounds, he plays a solid two-way game, and Therrien was not afraid to use him in late-game situations to protect a lead. De La Rose played in 33 regular-season games and 12 Stanley Cup Playoff games after his promotion, at center and wing, and he was on the ice more than 10 minutes in all but two of those 45 games.The one thing that might prevent De La Rose from making the Canadiens roster out of training camp is that he does not require waivers to be sent down to the AHL.Projected NHL arrival: 2015-162. , C/LWHow acquired: 5th round (No. 122), 2012 NHL DraftLast season: Hamilton, AHL: 75 GP, 19-38-57Hudon could become the latest fifth-round gem for Canadiens director of amateur scouting Trevor Timmins, following in the footsteps of another undersized player who dropped to the fifth round in 2010, .Hudon, 21, makes up for his slight build (5-foot-10, 191) with work ethic and smarts, excelling at both ends of the ice. His defensive abilities were known before he turned pro last season, but Hudon was surprisingly productive in the AHL, finishing second in rookie scoring after a blazing start to the season had him leading the league in December. Hudon did this while adjusting to a position switch to center, making him a more versatile prospect.Projected NHL arrival: 2016-173. , DHow acquired: Trade with on July 3, 2008Last season: Canadiens: 17 GP, 0-0-0; Hamilton, AHL: 53 GP, 3-12-15Pateryn turned 25 on June 20. It has taken some time, but he appears poised to make the jump to the NHL this season.Pateryn (6-foot-2, 222 pounds) plays a sound, rugged game in his end and could be considered a stay-at-home defenseman, though he has shown offensive ability in the AHL. It could be argued Pateryn has leapfrogged 2010 first-round pick on the organizational depth chart.Pateryn, who was selected in the fifth round (No. 128) of the 2008 NHL Draft by the Maple Leafs, would require waivers to be sent back to the AHL this season, making him a virtual lock to be on the NHL roster on opening night.Projected NHL arrival: 2015-164. Anthony Duclair Jersey, LWHow acquired: Signed as a free agent April 24, 2014Last season: Hamilton, AHL: 76 GP, 24-15-39Carr, 23, led AHL rookies and Hamilton in goals last season after the Canadiens signed him out of Union College. Playing on a line with Hudon, Carr was rewarded for his willingness and tenacious approach in getting to the scoring areas on the ice. The offensive abilities of the 6-foot, 193-pound left wing would be a welcome addition for the Canadiens, but he likely is a year away from contributing in the NHL.Projected NHL arrival: 2016-175. , RWHow acquired: 1st round (No. 26), 2014 NHL DraftLast season: Everett, WHL: 65 GP, 27-55-82Scherbak, 19, is the type of offensive talent the Canadiens need. He arrived at their development camp in July at 6-foot-2, 204 pounds, 2 inches taller and 32 pounds heavier than he was a year earlier. A long, rangy player with good puck skills, Scherbak will likely need a year of seasoning in St. John's but could be ready to push for a roster spot next season.Projected NHL arrival: 2017-18TOP HEADLINESNHL GREEN | | Back to the Future: Players on time travel | | | It's a huge milestone. I have to thank my teammates. It's hard to do by yourself in this league. It's a special moment for me and this team. Now we just have to keep going.
