Trade Between the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens Involving Joel Armia: Could Be the Perfect Destination for the Finn

Many things can be said against Joel Armia, such as his lack of consistency or frequent lapses in engagement, but he still possesses notable player qualities.

Armia excels in forechecking, creating turnovers, and puck protection. He also has a strong shot but lacks the instinct of a pure scorer.

It's not without reason that Martin St-Louis loudly expresses his admiration for Armia's work and qualities. With an imposing physique, Armia knows how to use it for more than just physicality.

The Boston Bruins, known for their excellence in puck protection, could be an ideal fit for Armia. It's part of their DNA and playing style, making them challenging to play against. Armia could be a perfect match for them.


"Armia at 1.7M for two runs would actually be a good add for a team looking for puck possession and bottom 6 depth

Boston seems like the perfect fit for Armia in my opinion."

It's definitely possible to see him going to Boston. We know that their lack of depth cost them dearly in the playoffs last season, and they will undoubtedly want to address the situation this year.

The window won't stay open indefinitely for them, so I expect them to make targeted acquisitions. Joel Armia is among those possibilities.
