As the end of the Montreal Canadiens' season approaches, many observers are already suggesting changes to increase the team's chances of being competitive next year.

According to Samuel Doiron from HABSolumentFan, three simple changes have been identified and could have a significant impact.

1- The first proposed change is to name Samuel Montembeault as the number one goalie ahead of Jake Allen. Statistics clearly indicate that this season, Allen has a record of 15-24-3, while Montembeault has a record of 16-17-3.

Therefore, it is suggested that the team has better chances of winning games by aligning Samuel Montembeault as the main goalie as often as possible.


2- The second adjustment is to fully integrate Rafaël Harvey-Pinard into the Montreal Canadiens team and assign him a role that corresponds to his skills.

His contribution has been significant since his return to the ice, and it is clear that the team's performance improves when RHP is part of the lineup, given his 14 goals and 20 points in 33 games.

3- The third modification involves integrating Justin Barron into the regular lineup and removing Chris Wideman from the roster. Barron seized his opportunity in the second half of the season and his potential is very promising. He could provide valuable help to the Montreal Canadiens throughout the 82 games of next season.

Although the Montreal Canadiens already have David Savard, Joel Edmundson, Mike Matheson, Jordan Harris, Arber Xhekaj, Kaiden Guhle, Jonathan Kovacevic, among others, in their lineup, it may seem surprising to consider adding Justin Barron. However, his performances really seem to justify his place on the team.
