Sean Farrell is the Canadiens’ most talented prospect according to Simon Boisvert
Sean Farrell has just had quite a season in the USHL. Not only did he have 101 points in 53 games, he was also named the best junior player in the United States by USA Hockey. Normally, he should play for Harvard University next season. But according to Simon Boisvert, the Canadian should try to convince his hope, which he describes as the most talented in the organization, to come and evolve with the Rocket.

First, very few would call Farrell the Canadiens’ most talented prospect. The majority of experts agree that it is Kaiden Guhle who occupies this position. Yes, Farrell is excellent and he’s just had an exceptional season, but Guhle is a very high quality prospect as well. We are talking about a defenseman who, in the worst case, should play in a top 4 in the NHL. I understand that Boisvert emphasizes the word talent, but I still believe that Guhle is superior.
Second, I’m always uncomfortable when an analyst or columnist says you have to « try to convince a young person not to go to college. »
the kid at 19 years old. He is fortunate to attend Harvard, one of the best universities in the world. And we want to deprive him of this chance? Truly?
Yes, I understand, he will be able to return to university if he wants to at the end of his professional career. But we often talk about the fact that the organization of the Canadiens precipitated the development of certain players. Jesperi Kotkaniemi, Victor Mete and Alex Galchenyuk are all very good examples.
Meanwhile, Cole Caufield has moved on in the NCAA and it all seems to have worked out.
I also understand that there is a risk and that we have a very good example with Jordan Harris that the CH will possibly lose in the summer of 2022 without getting anything in return.
But let the kid develop at his own pace. Let him go to school, like a normal 19 year old. No rush.

Michkov — like Canada’s Connor Bedard — is eligible for the 2023 NHL draft, but he has signed a 5 year contract with SKA St Petersburg that will keep him in the KHL through the 2025/26 season. https://t.co/U2J2WlWgJj
