With the start of training camp just a few weeks away in the National Hockey League, the various general managers in the league are starting to think about settling some important issues before the start of the 2022-23 season.
Typically, we see a second wave of trades in early September. In recent months, the Canadiens have acquired players such as Christian Dvorak
, Jake Allen
and Nick Suzuki
So who could leave the CH in the next few weeks, just before the start of the season? One candidate seems to stand out.
"According to information obtained in the last few days, there have been talks between the Flames and the CH to acquire Joel Armia
." - Scouting Review
You have to take this with a grain of salt, but it does indeed make sense. Armia fits perfectly with what the Flames are looking for and we know that Kent Hughes and the Calgary GM have a great business relationship.
For his part, Hughes has been very clear from the very beginning that he wants to give himself space under the salary cap. Also, with the addition of Evgeny Dadonov
, we shouldn't be surprised if Joel Armia
and his 3.4 million per year contract are traded.
The 29-year-old Finnish winger is signed until 2025 and has 14 points in 60 games with the Montreal Canadiens in 2021-22.
Do you think he could actually be traded to the Calgary Flames by the start of next season?
What would you ask for in return?
TRADE OR KEEP ARMIA?
