There seems to be quite a few empty seats at the Bell Centre to start the game tonight…

Cole Caufield is a very electrifying player. I still can’t believe he slipped so far in his draft year.
So far this season, the 22 has collected nine points in seven games. He’s on track for 105 points and 47 goals. That’s no mean feat. Obviously, the season is still very young and the chances of him continuing to produce at such a pace are slim, but we can dream, can’t we?
Yesterday, he scored the sixth overtime winner of his career, his second in less than a week. He’s a man of great opportunities, as they say.
A player like that is very special, and P.K. Subban knows it. The man who couldn’t pronounce “Caufield ” a few years ago is impressed by the youngster and compares him to a certain Martin St-Louis.
And just as well, it’s his head coach.
“Marty St-Louis is one of the toughest players I’ve ever played against in my career. And Cole Caufield looks no different on the ice.”
PK Subban just talking about the Habs still feels a bit surreal but it’s nice to hear 😌 https://t.co/3uL2XbHmNc

Subban had nothing but good things to say about the Canadiens’ diminutive forward. In his opinion, he deserved to be selected in the top-5 of the 2019 draft, but of course, he fell to the Habs at #15.
“King Cole”, as P.K. calls him, is worth the price of a single-game ticket at the Bell Centre. And believe me, tickets are very expensive. There’s a reason why so many benches were empty last night.
Good thing the show is good…
Anyway. Getting back to Subban’s comments about Caufield and his coach, the former CH defenseman admitted that St-Louis was one of the toughest players to face.
On the ice, he looks no different. – P.K. Subban
At the Caufield draft, Jack Hughes was the very first choice. In fact, he’s the only player in this auction with more game-winning goals than the little American. Did I tell you he loves big opportunities?
Speaking of Hughes, with his three points yesterday, his four points against Montreal and his 12 (!) points this week, many are beginning to call him the NHL’s best player. Is he? Here’s what Subban had to say on the subject :
Top 3 in the league… Mcdavid MACKINNON, Jack Hughes…. Cale Makar is nasty! Hate to
Leave him out of the top 3…

He’s won the hearts of fans and yes, in my opinion, he’s in the top-3 of the NHL’s best players.
