Three Habs Who Could Be Traded?

In a recent article on The Hockey News, Lyle Richardson, of the great site Spector’s Hockey, listed three Montreal Canadiens’ players who could potentially be traded by the team. With the Montreal Canadiens going nowhere this season, and with the numerous injuries, he feels like Marc Bergevin (or his successor) could be tempted to trade Brendan Gallagher, Ben Chiarot and Artturi Lehkonen.

Richardson cites TVA Sports’ Anthony Martineau for the Gallagher possibility. Then as we posted yesterday, rumours about Chiarot are rampant due to his pending UFA status. As for the Lehkonen possibility, it stems from Arthur Staple from The Athletics, who feels like he would be a good fit with the New York Rangers.

Chiarot is the most likely to go as a pending free agent. The Canadiens would have to receive a pretty good offer for Gallagher, who is likely a front runner to be named captain if Shea Weber calls it a career. Lehkonen would be a great asset but he’s rather inexpensive, while fitting in great with the core group of this team. He’s a low maintenance guy who brings it every night.

It would be shocking to see the Canadiens do anything until February as some of their injured players are starting to rejoin the line-up. And who knows if it will be Bergevin making the decisions…
