For the first time in several years, the Canadiens have received favor from fans regarding their picks in the last draft.

During a recent appearance on "The Sick Podcast With Tony Marinaro," Grant McCagg, former Canadiens scout, made a significant statement that should delight Montreal supporters.
According to him, Ivan Demidov could potentially be the best pure talent drafted by the Canadiens since Guy Lafleur in 1971, over 50 years ago.
Compared to NHL stars like Nikita Kucherov, Jack Hughes, and Kirill Kaprizov, Ivan Demidov stands out with exceptional hands that consistently put opposing defenders in difficult positions.
Quote from Grant McCagg: "I think he might be the best pure talent the Canadiens have drafted since Guy Lafleur. I can't think of anyone with more pure talent, his skill level is just as high as Guy Lafleur's. He'll excite fans like Kovalev, maybe even more. I think he'll score a lot more points than Kovalev."
