We know that Jake Allen is on the market, and Kent Hughes is just waiting for the right offer to come his way. The goalie's value may not be as high as hoped, but there is still some excitement.

According to recent reports from David Pagnotta, Kent Hughes' phone was ringing a lot before Christmas, and it has intensified. This situation is one to keep a close eye on.

The Hurricanes, Devils, and Oilers are reportedly in strong contention to acquire the goaltender.

"It's certainly intensifying, and just before the Holiday break, there was a lot of talk. These teams want to know the price to acquire this goalie, who is signed for another additional season, to bring him in as an experienced 1B goalie. He will generate even more interest in the coming days... He is not the only Hab generating interest in the trade market. There is also David Savard." - Pagnotta


Indeed, David Savard is another highly sought-after player. We know the importance of the defenseman, who blocks shots, defends well in his zone, and has been contributing offensively in recent games.

In short, other teams want to tap directly into the leadership of the Habs, but these remain two players with a certain value.
