Segment 2: BIG Topic - Breakthroughs and Bounce-backs

The Canadiens opening night roster is far from being set in stone. Kent Hughes has work yet to do if he is to achieve his off-season goal of greater cap flexibility.

But as we look at the current roster, there are opportunities for several young-guns to have breakthrough seasons. And for others, coming off less than a stellar year, they are candidates for a bounce-back season.

We'll discuss Cole Caufield, Brendan Gallagher, Justin Barron, Kirby Dach, Nick Suzuki and other Canadiens.
