Major Revelation: A Trade is More Likely Than Ever

Published January 24, 2024 at 5:52 PM

Yesterday's game at the Bell Centre, between the Canadiens and the Senators, attracted an impressive number of scouts from across the NHL.

With just a few weeks to the trade deadline, there is increasing buzz among teams in terms of discussions, and the presence of nearly thirty members from different league teams confirms this statement.

As journalist Stu Cowan points out, there were so many scouts present that the scouting list at the location had to be filled out on two pages.

However, what is more intriguing is when teams send key members of their organization to attend a game. Journalist Simon-Olivier Lorange noted an interesting list that offers clues about a potential ongoing negotiation.

It is noticeable that the Dallas Stars sent their assistant general manager, along with two directors of the organization, to attend yesterday's game.

It's a shame that Martin St-Louis's team delivered a poor performance that did not showcase anyone during the match.
