A transaction between the Montreal Canadiens and the Carolina Hurricanes involving a goaltender is worth monitoring

The Montreal Canadiens currently have three goaltenders on the team, and the impact is significant at all levels. The workload for the goaltending coach, Éric Raymond, is increased, as is the management work for the entire staff.

Furthermore, it creates a bottleneck with another player, forcing the Canadiens to choose between an extra forward or defenseman, but they cannot have both at the same time to adhere to the 23-player roster. In short, it's far from an ideal situation, and it doesn't just affect the goalies.

In Edmonton, there is a need for a spark, a goaltender capable of making key saves, and the Hurricanes are also in the market. With the long-term loss of Frederik Andersen, they could be potential candidates for a trade.

This is the belief of Pierre LeBrun, and now TVA Sports. Montreal and Detroit are the two preferred destinations for their goaltending shopping. The next step is to see which candidate is the most interesting for them and what price they will have to pay.


In Montreal, with three goalies performing well, it would be surprising if Kent Hughes asked for a low price for one of his goaltenders.

IN YOUR OPINION, SHOULD KENT HUGHES ACCEPT AN OFFER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, EVEN IF IT IS LOWER THAN HOPED FOR?
