Leading up to the NHL Entry Draft, Montreal Canadiens Owner, President and Chief Executive Officer Geoff Molson took to Twitter to ask fans what they were thinking as we entered the big week. He never never does that. A huge P.K. Subban storm happened, followed by Lars Eller being dealt to the Capitals and Andrew Shaw brought in from the Blackhawks before the first selection being made. Maybe Geoff knew something.

In this edition of Behind the CH, host Sean Icon (filling in for Luca LaPorta) and prospect guru Mitch Brown discuss each individual player drafted by the Canadiens at the NHL Draft this past weekend in Buffalo, the two trades that landed Eller and Shaw and the RFA deadline that is at 5pm ET Monday. Furthermore, Brown talks about the big years that Artturi Lehkonen, Michael McCarron and Jake Evans had this past season as well as Daniel Carr, Sven Andrighetto, Darren Dietz and Charles Hudon at the NHL level.
