HEADLINE: Samuel Montembeault Could Be on His Way Out of Montreal as the Oilers Seem Persistent

The Canadiens' goaltending situation continues to be a topic of discussion, and new information on negotiations between the Oilers and the Habs surfaces every day.

Insider Elliotte Friedman has been closely following the situation and has just revealed something significant. The Oilers have made a request to Kent Hughes, indicating their strong preference for Samuel Montembeault.

According to Friedman, "The Oilers have expressed interest in both Primeau and Montembeault and have asked for clarity on Montembeault's contract extension negotiations. Should the Canadiens keep Monty, and if not, what would you want in return?"


This suggests that the Oilers are keen on Montembeault, and by inquiring about contract negotiations, it seems they are interested in a medium to long-term deal.


It's unclear whether Kent Hughes would be willing to trade the Hometown goaltender, but the fact that a contract has not been signed yet raises doubts.

Could the Canadiens potentially trade Samuel Montembeault and keep Cayden Primeau as their future goaltender, against expectations? Are the salary demands from Montembeault's agent so high that Kent Hughes might prefer to part ways with him?

It remains to be seen, but one thing is certain: a trade involving Jake Allen and the Oilers seems unlikely at this point.
