The 2013 Montreal Canadiens depth chart

A few people have requested a full depth chart for the Montreal Canadiens this year that can be referred back to, so I mocked one up.

A depth chart includes only those players who are eligible to play in the NHL, so we're going to ignore junior prospects and players in the NCAA or Europe.

Left Wingers Centers Right Wingers
Max Pacioretty Tomas Plekanec Brian Gionta
Alex Galchenyuk Lars Eller Brendan Gallagher
Rene Bourque David Desharnais Danny Briere
Brandon Prust Ryan White Gabriel Dumont
Travis Moen Michael Bournival Louis Leblanc
Sven Andrighetto Joonas Nattinen Christian Thomas
Nick Tarnasky Martin St. Pierre Michael Blunden
Patrick Holland
Stefan Fournier
Steven Quailer
Left Defense Right Defense
Andrei Markov P.K. Subban
Josh Gorges Raphael Diaz
Alexei Emelin Magnus Nygren
Francis Bouillon Greg Pateryn
Davis Drewiske Morgan Ellis
Nathan Beaulieu Darren Dietz
Jarred Tinordi Dalton Thrower
Carey Price
Peter Budaj
Dustin Tokarski
Robert Mayer
Peter Delmas
Michael Condon

The Canadiens have their highest-end talent on right defense and left wing, but that's also where the talent thins out quickest. Because of the lack of talent on the left side wing, the Bulldogs will be shifting some scoring right wingers to the left side. The same thing will be happening on the Canadiens defense, unless Pateryn or Nygren seize their chance and take the roster spot left empty by Emelin's injury.

EDIT: As has been pointed out, I forgot George Parros. Pencil him in behind Dumont.
