Since Jeff Gorton was hired by the Canadiens, there's hope that he will pull off another major signing like he did with Artemi Panarin for the Rangers.

Steven Stamkos' name is frequently mentioned in Montreal, as he will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1st, and it's easy to link him to Martin St-Louis and Vincent Lecavalier. But what about a player who is even better and younger?
Many rumors suggest that Leon Draisaitl wants to leave the Edmonton Oilers once his contract expires next summer.
According to Marc Antoine Godin, the German player has a preference for San Jose, but he also mentioned Montreal in his comments.
What's significant is that Kent Hughes will have ample means to offer him a substantial contract, which could play to the Canadiens' advantage.
We're talking about a forward who hasn't scored less than 100 points per season in the last six years.
This is an enormous contribution, the second-best in the NHL behind his teammate Connor McDavid.
Moreover, Draisaitl is almost never injured and produces at an even more incredible pace in the playoffs.
If the Canadiens can indeed sign him, it would change the face of the team for many years.
