Canadiens Daily: Struble Has Trade Value; Pacioretty Opens Up



NHL Trade

For the first time in awhile now, the Canadiens Daily won’t have a strong flavour of Pierre-Luc Dubois to the Montreal Canadiens NHL Trade rumours.

For now, it’s status quo on that but there’s plenty to talk about around the NHL in the latest Canadiens Daily:

Montreal Canadiens

.The Montreal Canadiens thankfully have a plethora of strong defenceman in their prospect system. When some of those young defenceman are mentioned in NHL Trade Rumours amongst media and fans, Northeastern University senior defenceman Jayden Struble isn’t usually in the conversation. According to ome NHL amateur scout though, Struble is very noticeable.

After learning what accountability is all about playing for the Montreal Canadiens, former Canadiens captain Max Pacioretty was surprised at the close to Club Med atmosphere within the Vegas Golden Knights organization.

National Hockey Now

BOS: The Boston Bruins waived goodbye to another young prospect as forward Anton Blidh signed a one-year deal with the Colorado Avalanche. Truth be told, the Bruins, according to multiple NHL sources, tried to move Blidh more than once over the last two years. Maybe it’s not on the team in this one.

NYI: How would the lineup look for the New Islanders if Nazem Kadri signs with them?

PGH: Don’t expect the Pittsburgh Penguins to have a fully loaded rookie squad when they face the Montreal Canadiens and two other NHL rookie squads at the Buffalo Sabres rookie showcase Sept. 15-19 at LECOM Harborcenter in Buffalo.

WSH: What Washington Capitals prospects will be at the continuation of the 2022 World Juniors?

FLA: Good listen from our brothers in southern Florida, George Richards and Colby Guy on he latest Florida Hockey Now Podcast.

DET: Former Detroit Red Wings forward and two-time Stanley Cup champion Mike Knuble is loving coaching in his hometown as an assistant coach for the Grand Rapids Griffins in the AHL.

COL: Here’s more on the Anton Blidh signing by the Colorado Avalanche over at Colorado Hockey Now.

VGK: The Vegas Golden Knights may have missed the 2022 Stanley Cup playoffs but thwy return for the 2022-23 season with one of the strongest cores up the middle, led by Jack Eichel.

Canada Hockey Now

CAL: Can the Calgary Flames actually convince someone to stay there and lock up newly acquired winger Jonathan Huberdeau? Or will they need to save face and eventually move him on the NHL trade market?

VAN: The Vancouver Canucks will have a preseason full of rival hatred,

The woman that said she was sexually assaulted after a Hockey Canada gala in 2018 spoke in depth to legal authorities about what happened to her. Hockey Canada is on record as saying she didn’t cooperate with the police. Another lie by a disgraced organization!

Struble has a lot of upside and yes Jimmy it’s 100% true that many people have taken their eyes off the radar with respect to him. He’s a fantastic athlete, played baseball as a youth at a very high level, he plays both sides of the ice, he’s a physical machine and an intimidating factor out there, and his game has improved in terms of when and where to pick his spots. The one problem he seems to have and it’s a significant problem is recurring injuries- mostly groin injuries, to the point where one seriously has to question what he’s doing to address those issues… because it could put his development in jeopardy. Is he consulting specialists, would he need some kind of corrective surgery, is he practising Pilates, is he practising yoga, is he taking specialized stretching courses? He was here for development camp and couldn’t play because of an LBI which I suspect was a groin issue….anyhow- It’s definitely a concern and one I hope he is aggressively seeking answers to. If he irons it out, personally I would look to keep him in the fold IF he expresses an interest to sign here. I would NOT trade him. He is a true beast and could be exactly what we need to be a playoff contender down the road.
