BREAKING: Two Names Emerge as Possible Trade Baits Before the Deadline

Published March 8, 2024 at 12:33

We are just a few hours away from the NHL trade deadline, and even though few trades have been concluded so far, there appears to be a lot of discussions happening behind the scenes.

Obviously, the player attracting the most attention from the Montreal Canadiens is without a doubt the 33-year-old veteran David Savard. However, the Canadiens' General Manager, Kent Hughes, has made it clear that he does not wish to part with his defenseman unless an exceptional offer comes along.

Clearly, he does not want to deviate from his plan, and this is undoubtedly great news for the Canadiens.

However, while the chances of seeing David Savard leave the Canadiens are rather low, it would not be surprising to see forward Tanner Pearson traded for a late draft pick.

In the last few minutes, David Pagnotta revealed exclusive information about what's going on with the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge. According to his information, Kent Hughes is currently in discussions with some teams regarding a trade involving Jake Allen and Tanner Pearson.

"Montreal is also in talks regarding goaltender Jake Allen and forward Tanner Pearson, among others.

Pearson will become an unrestricted free agent in July and could be traded to a contender looking to add depth to their 'bottom-six'." - Via The Fourth Period

That's interesting!

Will Kent Hughes perform a little miracle by managing to get rid of one of his two veterans by the end of the trade deadline?

Certainly, it's a case to watch in the coming hours!
