CHRISTIAN DVORAK TO BE TRADED BY THE CANADIENS? THE PRICE MIGHT SURPRISE YOU

NOV 21, 2022  (21H34)      MARCO
Although he has only scored nine points in 18 games so far this season, defensively Christian Dvorak is doing a great job.

He is often confronted with the best opposing trio and little by little, the Canadiens' management is starting to really trust him, to the point that if ever a team was interested in his services, Kent Hughes might be quite greedy.

In fact, as reported by Raphaël Simard of Danslescoulisses.com, Renaud Lavoie raised the possibility of a trade involving the Habs' number 28 during his appearance on TVA Sports' JiC show.



As we know, the Habs still have a surplus of offensive players and it is likely that the organization will be active in the coming weeks to release some contracts.

There has been a lot of talk about this lately and the names of Mike Hoffman, Jonathan Drouin and Dvorak were often mentioned in discussions about which of these players could be sacrificed by Kent Hughes.

However, according to Lavoie, it would be very surprising if the Habs traded Christian Dvorak just to get out of his contract.

"I know he has two more years left on his contract, but he's a guy who's playing his defensive role very well right now. That's mostly what's being asked of him with the Montreal Canadiens. If he continues like this, I wonder if there isn't a team out there knocking on the door of the Montreal Canadiens to release them from this contract."

The journalist even suggests that if a team wanted to acquire him, the price to pay could be very high.

"I'm not saying that the Canadiens will let him go for a fifth round pick. Not at all, that's not what's going to happen. We're not going to give Christian Dvorak away. Somehow, Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton are not giving away any players. We thought Jeff Petry was to be given away for a pittance, that's not what happened and it's going to be the same for Christian Dvorak."

That said, the way Dvorak has been playing since the beginning of the season, it could very well be that a formation in search of a depth center is knocking on the door of the Habs, but as we know, Kent Hughes has proven that he never trades a player without getting something substantial in return. We saw it with the transaction that sent Artturi Lehkonen to Colorado last year.

But if Hughes could get what he wanted in a deal involving his center, he would definitely listen.

To be continued.
