The general manager of the Montreal Canadiens, Kent Hughes, has made a very significant decision with Cayden Primeau. It will have a direct impact on the team's future.

Indeed, at the beginning of the season, Hughes decided to embark on a three-goalie rotation because he was afraid of losing Primeau for nothing. Clearly, he had confidence in him and didn't want to lose him for nothing.

And today, Cayden is playing like a number 1 goalie. He is so dominant in front of the net! The Canadiens will have the luxury of choice when it comes to their future starting goalie between him and Samuel Montembeault.

Imagine if Kent Hughes had lost Primeau at the beginning of the season. With Jake Allen's contract expiring in a year and the fact that he is getting older, he would have to find a replacement for Montembeault.


Furthermore, if the GM decides to trade one of them because the young goalies are pushing up, they will both have significant value. Primeau and Montembeault are making noise throughout the NHL with their performances.

It can be said that despite criticism, Kent Hughes has once again made the right call. Instead of losing Primeau for nothing, he converted Jake Allen into a 3rd round pick, which could possibly become a 2nd round pick.
