Kent Hughes needs to improve the offense, and the process involves making new acquisitions but also trading certain targeted players.

Let's not hide it, there are bad contracts handed out by Marc Bergevin that still hurt the Canadiens to this day. Brendan Gallagher got married yesterday, so we'll leave him alone. Anyway, he is not one of the veterans targeted by David Pagnotta.
According to the insider, Christian Dvorak and Joel Armia are the two veterans that Kent Hughes is trying to trade. It's not surprising, but it is now confirmed.
For Dvorak, the return will obviously not be very good, as he hasn't produced up to expectations and is often injured. However, he could still interest teams because he plays center.
Joel Armia had a very good end to the season, making him more attractive to other clubs. Many believe he can still be useful to the Canadiens, but I think this is exactly the right time to trade him.
You have to seize the momentum when it comes, and with his performance to end the last campaign, Armia has value, which I didn't expect to say a year ago.
"According to insider David Pagnotta, veterans Christian Dvorak and Joel Armia are candidates to be traded this summer. Kent Hughes is interested in trading them."

Both players only have one year remaining on their contracts, so they are not a significant risk for teams that might be interested. However, it's understandable that they are not the first option for these teams, and a trade might be announced much later in the summer.
