Massive Turnaround for Samuel Montembault: Could a Trade be More Likely Than Expected?
Published November 14, 2023 at 10h00
The goaltender situation continues to generate a lot of buzz within the Montreal Canadiens organization.
Everyone knows that the organization can't keep three goalies for much longer, and everyone knows that Cayden Primeau can't go so long without playing a game.
It's literally very harmful for the young player's development.
In his most recent article, journalist Arpon Basu, who covers the Montreal Canadiens, approached the goalie situation from a very interesting angle.
He particularly mentioned this.
In short, the CH doesn't want to lose Primeau to waivers, particularly so he can be Montembeault's backup next year, if Samuel leaves and signs with another team. After all, he will be an unrestricted free agent (UFA) and free as a bird next summer.
It's also interesting to note that apparently, the CH is cautious in this matter and doesn't want to commit «too easily» to signing a 3 or 4-year contract with Montembeault.
They are waiting to be certain.
A situation to follow over the coming months.
Would you sign a 4-year contract, at 4 million per year, with Montembeault?
