Fans already have names in mind when it comes to defensemen who could be traded, and Arpon Basu has taken it upon himself to warn them.

Indeed, in an ideal world, Kent Hughes would trade Justin Barron and Jordan Harris, but it doesn't work that way.
To receive, you have to give, and the two aforementioned defensemen don't have much value on the trade market.
This is where Basu steps in. There will certainly be personnel movement this summer, and fans need to stop thinking that a well-liked defenseman can't be traded.
«According to him, to create space in the team's defensive brigade, players like Harris or Barron won't fetch much in return. Instead, a young defenseman like Jayden Struble might be demanded by other teams.» - Marco Normandin

Struble has shown everyone his athletic qualities. He's an excellent skater, strong as an ox, solid defensively, and can support the attack, plus he's willing to drop the gloves when necessary.
He has essentially forced the Canadiens' hand to keep him in the NHL. With 10 points in 57 games as a rookie, that's more than respectable, especially since his role isn't to score.
So don't be surprised if Jordan Harris and Justin Barron are still with the Canadiens in September, but Struble has left the ship.
