Incredible: A goaltender finally changes teams, and the Montreal Canadiens officially lose a potential partner

Yesterday, we discussed the possibility that Kent Hughes might lose a potential trading partner for a goaltender, and it has just been confirmed.

The Carolina Hurricanes claimed Spencer Martin off waivers, meaning that, unless there is a surprise, they can be removed from the rumors surrounding Jake Allen.

There had been talks between the Canadiens and the Hurricanes for a few weeks. We know that Frederik Andersen and Piotr Kotchetkov are both injured, and Antti Raanta spent some time in the AHL.

The Hurricanes now join the Oilers on the list of former potential partners for a goaltender exchange. Is Kent Hughes's ambition closing doors for him?


We will see by the trade deadline, but one thing is certain, it seems to be getting increasingly challenging for Kent Hughes to complete transactions. Other general managers know that he is a shrewd negotiator, in addition to being very patient.
