The situation with the goaltenders is generating a lot of discussion in Montreal and around the league. Managing a three-goalie situation is far from straightforward, and the logical move would be to expose Cayden Primeau to waivers. However, it seems that several teams are patiently waiting for Kent Hughes to place Primeau on waivers to claim him.

According to Renaud Lavoie, many teams are closely monitoring this situation and are ready to make a move to acquire Primeau if he goes on waivers.

"Several teams are watching this situation closely and are thinking: if Cayden Primeau goes on waivers, it will be our opportunity to get him."

These teams are in need of a backup goaltender to help their young prospects get more playing time in the minors. Lavoie mentioned the New Jersey Devils, St. Louis Blues, and Anaheim Ducks as potential suitors for Primeau.


Primeau already has some NHL experience and could be a solid backup behind an established goaltender for one of these teams. Kent Hughes is aware of the interest and is likely trying to maximize his return, but a decision will have to be made sooner or later, as the current situation isn't beneficial for anyone involved.

SHOULD KENT HUGHES LOWER HIS EXPECTATIONS AND TRADE PRIMEAU MORE QUICKLY?
