Major transaction between the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens involving forward Sean Monahan: it is necessary to keep an eye on this possibility

Among the pleasant surprises this year, Sean Monahan is certainly one of them. Used as the team's third center, it's a real luxury to have a player of his caliber for such a role.

Monahan is not only productive, but he also excels in faceoffs and plays well on both ends of the ice, in addition to being a great mentor for the young players. In short, he will undoubtedly be in demand at the trade deadline.

One team that could potentially make a competitive offer is undoubtedly Boston. Despite the losses of David Krejci and Patrice Bergeron, it was thought that they would struggle this season, but they are still among the top teams in the league.

However, if they don't want to be eliminated in the first round like last year, they will need to make additions, and a center who can play in the top 9 would not be a luxury.


Monahan, who is paid $1.985 million until the end of the season, is the ideal player for them heading into the playoffs, considering his contribution and salary.

Kent Hughes will have a difficult decision to make because he likely intends to keep Monahan as a valuable veteran to mentor the young players. However, he will likely receive tempting offers for him by March 8.

The window is closing for the Bruins, so they really need to be watched closely in this matter. They won't wait for several years before going all-in and trying to win another Stanley Cup.
