Canadiens Daily: Wright-Slafkovsky Debate; Too Many Avalanche?



NHL Trade

The Shane Wright-Juraj Slafkovsky debate rages on as NHL trade rumours do too with the NHL Draft two weeks away.

Should the Colorado Avalanche have been called for a high stick and/or too many men on the ice before Nazem Kadri scored the overtime winner to give them a 3-1 series lead over the Tampa Bay Lightning?

That and more in your MHN Canadiens Daily:

Montreal Canadiens

Certain media in Montreal can keep building their ‘Canadiens are leaning towards Juraj Slafkovsky’ over Shane Wright all they want, but reality paints a different picture. Maybe don’t use Samone from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off as your source?

The Florida Panthers hired Paul Maurice as their head coach and if they continue to make major changes to their chemistry it could benefit the Montreal Canadiens.

The Montreal Canadiens have already began their salary cap space purge but Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton should caution themselves when it comes to buyouts.

BOS: Apparently we better be ready for ‘bogus’ NHL trade rumours surrounding Boston Bruins winger David Pastrnak. Despite his agent throwing water on the trade chatter surrounding his client, the silly season has begun and he’s apparently going to the New Jersey Devils for the second round pick. LOL!

PGH: Congrats to our main man in Pitt and for National Hockey Now, Dan Kingerski, on his new Pittsburgh Sports ventures and!

PHI: After hiring John Tortorella as their new head coach, could the Philadelphia Flyers enter the NHL trade sweepstakes for Chicago Blackhawks winger Alex DeBrincat?

WSH: Will veteran defenceman Justin Schultz be back with the Washington Capitals next season?

DET: Could the Moritz Seider-Lucas Raymond tandem for the Detroit Red Wings be like the old Allan Trammell-Lou Whitaker duo was for the Detroit Tigers.

FLA: Can Paul Maurice get the Florida Panthers over the playoff hump?

COL: The Colorado Avalanche are one win away from their first Stanley Cup since 2001 and their third in franchise history thanks to a Nazem Kadri overtime goal in Game 4. Were there too many men on the ice when Kadri sealed the 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning? Maybe but I’ll echo what an NHL assistant coach told me after Jon Cooper cried a river all the way back to Denver.

VAN: Could the Vancouver Canucks and Pittsburgh Penguins hook up on the NHL trade market in a trade that sends J.T. Miller to the Penguins?


The Chicago Blackhawks have promoted Meghan Hunter to assistant general manger among several front office moves, making her the third woman to currently hold that position and fourth in NHL history.
Does Calgary Flames winger Johnny Gaudreau want to stay in Calgary or head home to the east coast?
