REPORT: Kris Letang makes a BIG statement about the Montreal Canadiens - Is he right?

The Montreal Canadiens went from a team that made it all the way to the Stanley Cup finals, to finishing dead last the next season.

Under new management, the team decided it was time to do a rebuild, which started the right way, with a first overall pick.

The team has some young talent emerging like Cole Caufield, Juraj Slafkovsky, Kaiden Guhle and captain Nick Suzuki. Along with prospects who are still working their way into the NHL.

The Habs also have done some very smart moves like take on the contract of Sean Monahan for some additional draft picks that could pay huge results in the future.


At the time of writing 3-2-0 on the season, which surprisingly isn't where they want to be, as they want to be a contender in the Connor Bedard sweepstakes this season.

Kris Letang was rumoured to be joining the Montreal Canadiens to finish his career, but that's obviously changed after signing a massive deal that takes him into his 40's with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Letang joined journalist Renaud Lavoie on his podcast and made a huge statement about the future of the Montreal Canadiens:

"The Habs will become a force within three years."

The Habs are doing all the right things right now to not only become a contender again, but to stay a contender. Do you think Letang is right?
