Habs News

Players like Jake Allen and Sean Monahan are likely to be moved, however, there are other potential deals to be done involving some less-discussed trade chips.

  • Brendan Gallagher’s poorly-timed penalties are impossible to ignore. Despite putting up some relatively healthy 5v5 numbers, his lack of discipline has removed all positive aspects of his impact from the equation.

  • The Canadiens are among the bottom five teams in many important statistical categories, but goaltender Samuel Montembeault continues to steal points, which is reflected in the standings.

  • The youngest player in the lineup is gaining confidence. Juraj Slafkovsky had a positive effect on the top line, and now that he’s maintained strong play on the second line with Joel Armia and Sean Monahan, his confidence is skyrocketing.

  • Columbus Blue Jackets defenceman David Jiricek was sixth overall during Slafkovsky’s draft season. He’s playing in the NHL but is not happy with his lack of powerplay usage with the Blue Jackets.

  • Speaking of Canadiens trade options, the New Jersey Devils’ reassignment for goaltender Akira Schmid is not going as planned. The Devils have long been rumoured as one of the teams in the NHL with the most interest in goaltenders on the trade market.[New Jersey Devils]
  • Will the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers pursue Alberta native and Boston Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk if he hits NHL free agency next July? In a recent one-on-one interview with Boston Hockey Now, Boston Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk reiterated his desire to sign a contract extension with the Bruins. [Boston Bruins]
  • The Philadelphia Flyers sent Bobby Brink to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms on Jan. 22, and since he was scratched for the Jan. 18 game against the Dallas Stars, the team has gone 1-5-0. Just a week into his Phantoms tenure, Brink has shown the Flyers why they made a mistake in banishing him to the AHL. [Philadelphia Flyers]
