Hockey Analysts Playing Keeps And Trades

TVA Sports asked their hockey analysts whom, on the Montreal Canadiens, they would shop around in trades and which one they would keep. It made for some interesting talks but frankly, some couldn’t be more obvious. Here’s what they would do…

Renaud LavoieJake AllenBrendan Gallagher
Patrick LalimeJonathan DrouinNick Suzuki
Felix SeguinJoel ArmiaArtturi Lehkonen
Louis JeanCarey PriceDominique Ducharme
Guillaume LatendresseJeff PetryRyan Poehling
Maxime LapierreBen ChiarotAlexander Romanov

For the sake of argument, here are my picks. But I will stay away from the obvious like Nick Suzuki or Alexander Romanov staying and Ben Chiarot being traded, which are some very, very obvious choices.

TRADE: Jonathan Drouin – I won’t get into a bashing rant but I’ve given up on him.

KEEP: Jeff Petry – The Canadiens lack quality RD and I believe he can and will bounce back.

What are yours?
