The Canadiens had a good holiday road trip, returning with a .500 record. If someone had told Martin St-Louis that this would be the outcome before the trip, he would have probably accepted the result without hesitation.

The issue lies more in their return home. The Habs have a negative record at the Bell Centre, and it's starting to raise questions, especially now that the mid-season has officially been reached.

Speaking of mid-season, Kent Hughes will soon be available to the media to discuss the first 41 games and the team's plans moving forward.

"The Canadiens hit the midway point of the season Thursday - GM Kent Hughes will hold his midseason media availability on Monday (January 15th) around 11am ET."

Hot topics include the goaltenders and the trade deadline. According to what the GM said on 'L'Antichambre' on Monday night, the three-way arrangement might last the entire season. So, he will likely be questioned on the subject again.

As for trades, we learned this morning that there is an agreement between him and Sean Monahan dating back to before the signing of his contract this summer. Hughes committed to trading him to a contending team or a team of his choice before the trade deadline. A sort of quid pro quo, as the Canadiens gave him the chance to get back 'on the map,' and he will assist the Canadiens in getting a good return.

It will be very interesting to see how he responds to this. In any case, it promises to be very interesting, so mark your calendars for Monday morning.
