As part of the trade concluded Sunday between CH and Pittsburgh, goaltender Casey DeSmith arrived in Montreal, and this has raised many questions about the goaltending situation.
However, we have just learned very interesting information that speaks volumes about Kent Hughes.
Immediately after the announcement of the acquisition of DeSmith, the Canadiens' general manager hurried to call Samuel Montembeault's agent to reassure him.
Wow. Not all GMs would have done that.
The goaltender added this:
Case closed, then! Montembeault is firmly in place as CH's goaltender, and we are already looking forward to seeing him back in action in a few weeks.
He will evidently be the team's number one goalie to start the next campaign.
