Surprise for the Canadiens: The replacement for Sean Monahan has been identified for the first wave of power play.

The Canadiens made a significant move by sending Sean Monahan to Winnipeg for a first-round pick and a conditional third-round pick.

It's not just a center they've lost; it's a leader, a faceoff specialist, and a crucial asset on the power play. The burning question now is, who will replace him?

For now, another veteran steps in. Tanner Pearson will have the opportunity to play alongside Nick Suzuki, Cole Caufield, Juraj Slafkovsky, and Michael Matheson.

This could be positive for both the player and the team. Pearson, set to be an unrestricted free agent this summer, has the chance to showcase his skills.


If he performs well, he might either be traded to a contending team or attract attention for a contract in the offseason.
