This year, the biggest disappointment for the Montreal Canadiens is undoubtedly Josh Anderson.

At 29 years old, and in his fourth season of a seven-year deal worth $5.5 million annually, he is on track to have the worst full season of his career.
He currently has a production of eight goals and only 18 points in 63 games. At this rate, he would finish the season with a mere 10 goals and 23 points. Yikes!
Honestly, it's difficult to understand what is so wrong with the play of number 17, and that's what is particularly concerning about him.
In the world of hockey, if you don't perform, it can weigh heavily on morale in the long term and can also become very harmful to mental health. Fortunately, teams are increasingly aware of this reality and offer more support to help players.
Cayden Primeau and Joel Armia, two players who have had their share of challenges in previous years, have agreed to work with a mental performance coach in recent months. The result is quite striking.
The young goalkeeper seems to be slowly meeting the expectations placed on him after his exploits in the NCAA, and for the Finnish forward, he has never offered such consistent play since his excellent season of 16 goals and 30 points in 58 games in 2020.

Josh Anderson declined the Canadiens' help

The Canadiens offer their players essential resources to help them perform, but unfortunately, some refuse this help from the organization, including Josh Anderson.
Recently on BPM Sports, Tony Marinaro revealed shocking information about him stating that despite his troubles, he declined this support from the Tricolore.
Anderson's refusal to accept the available support says a lot about his personality and raises questions about his commitment to his team. If he cannot bounce back next season, he could find himself in a precarious position vis-à-vis the Canadiens.
