Transaction between the Canadiens and the Hurricanes involving a forward and a goaltender: The player rumored to be involved is Michael Bunting

The entire NHL knows that Jake Allen or Cayden Primeau is available for the Canadiens. General Manager Kent Hughes has been trying to trade one of the two for several months now.

Where the GM keeps his cards close to his chest is that we still don't know with certainty which one he prefers to keep. It might be Cayden Primeau, but it's not without doubts.

The Carolina Hurricanes, in search of a goaltender and linked to the Canadiens in a trade, are looking to part ways with a forward, and for once, we have a specific name. That name is Michael Bunting.

This is indeed what Elliotte Friedman mentions. Bunting is a forward well-known to Canadiens fans, especially for his years in Toronto. Last season, he had a 50-point season, and he has 25 points this season.


Considering the lack of depth upfront for the Canadiens, the addition of a player like Bunting would make a lot of sense.
