Habsent Minded is back to preview the annual list where we rank the organization’s top players who are yet to blow out 25 candles on their birthday cake. Jared Book is joined by Anton Rasegård to discuss the expectations for this year’s list.

With the upcoming weeks in mind, and without knowing anything about even each other’s rankings, Jared and Anton go through last year’s ranking to see who we can project to have made either a leap or a bit of a tumble into 2021. Before that, a discussion on the Montreal Canadiens drafts of 2014 to 2016, and how they have influenced the Top 25 Under 25 we are seeing today.

Who will take the title of Most Divisive Prospect with Victor Mete and Noah Juulsen now having left the franchise? Where will the new draft selections end up on their inaugural list? And lastly, who will take that number one spot?

Note that the final rankings are still not known, so everything discussed is the opinion of Jared and Anton and it can be listened to without spoiling anything. It can be listened to below, as well as wherever you enjoy your podcasts.
