It's really a shame that Xhekaj is now in Laval, but if it's genuinely to help his development, it's a good thing. However, he is already missed by the Canadiens, as we saw in Thursday night's game against the Kings.

With the sheriff in town, the Canadiens' opponents are more cautious, and the team is less vulnerable. But well, one must think long-term, and his development is crucial.

If the Canadiens have any intention of trading him, his value would be very high according to Mathias Brunet.

"A first-round pick, the Canadiens can get one with their eyes closed for Xhekaj. And that, I confirm to you, quote me!" - Mathias Brunet



He seems really convinced. For a player overlooked in the draft, that's quite significant!

We would like to tell you that the plan for the Habs is to keep him, but with all the promising defense prospects in the team, nothing should be taken for granted.
