Five Canadiens Players Officially Hit the Trade Block

Published December 10, 2023 at 2:48 PM

The Montreal Canadiens are currently in a transitional phase this season.

The team is still addressing several needs while focusing on the development of its young core, rather than immediate results.

Kent Hughes, again this year, will take on the role of seller at the trade deadline, with several assets available for making wise trades.

In addition to potential moves of two unrestricted free agents, Sean Monahan and Tanner Pearson, who seem likely to leave the team by March, three other players could follow the same path.

According to information from David Pagnotta of *The Fourth Period*, Jake Allen, Joel Armia, and Christian Dvorak are names to watch.

« There is a lot of speculation regarding the trade of Montreal Canadiens' goaltender Jake Allen, but let's not forget forwards Christian Dvorak and Joel Armia - they are still available for a potential trade. »

From Pagnotta's comments, it appears that these three players could leave the team if a suitable offer comes Kent Hughes' way, given that they are entering their last contract season next year.

Their departure could offer an opportunity for the team to maximize their value on the trade market.

Moreover, with the salary cap increase expected for the next season, this period could be opportune for the Canadiens to negotiate these contracts, taking advantage of the additional leeway offered to teams.
