Whether fans like it or not, rebuilding is necessary to build a great team with a young core, and a reporter compared the prospects pool of the Detroit Red Wings and the Montreal Canadiens.

While the draft is far from a sure thing, there's always a good chance of finding a gem. The Montreal Canadiens have drafted well in recent years, even if it's too early to tell. With the recent selection of Ivan Demidov, a glaring need may have been filled.
Speaking on BPM Sports, Simon Boisvert compared the futures of the Habs and the Detroit Red Wings, asserting that the Habs have a more promising outlook. Boisvert's assessment is based on the Canadiens' depth of prospects and the Red Wings' recent shift towards signing veteran players, signalling the end of their rebuild.
Steve Yzerman, the Red Wings GM, signed several veterans, including Patrick Kane and Vladimir Tarasenko, aiming to push for the playoffs. Last season's signings, including Andrew Copp and JT Compher, did not result in a playoff berth, raising questions about the strategy of moving away from rebuilding.
Yzerman believes in the team's playoff potential, but Boisvert criticizes the abrupt end to the rebuild, suggesting that drafting more young talent would have been beneficial. Key young players drafted by Yzerman include Moritz Seider, Lucas Raymond, and Simon Edvinsson, while Dylan Larkin is a strong "young veteran."
When comparing cores, the Habs boast Nick Suzuki, Juraj Slafkovsky, Cole Caufield, and Kaiden Guhle, along with promising prospects like Ivan Demidov, David Reinbacher, and Lane Hutson. This depth indicates Montreal's bright future, showcasing its solid drafting and development.
Overall, do you agree with the report that said that the Canadien's prospect pool looks stronger than the Red Wings.
