Despite their win in the opening game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, for the Montreal Canadiens, it must be said that the six defensemen in uniform for that game were not a very experienced squad.

The same can be said for all the games this week, especially with the injury to Mike Matheson.
In fact, we learned that he will be out for eight weeks and that Corey Schueneman has been recalled from the Laval Rocket.
As we all know, injuries are part of hockey and every year, no NHL team is spared. But when a team is missing two important elements, it's the job of the general manager to go out and get reinforcements if needed. As Charles-Alexis Brisebois of Danslescoulisses.com reports, it's quite possible that Kent Hughes will be active in the coming days.
At least that's what tipster Marco D'Amico of Montreal Hockey Now said in his most recent column. He mentioned that the first pair of defensemen, Kaiden Guhle and David Savard, will definitely need help in the coming games and with the length of Edmundson's absence still unknown, D'Amico sees this as a great opportunity for Kent Hughes to trade up to get some backup.
With this situation, could a forward be sacrificed for a defenseman?
It's possible, but we must admit that the Habs' GM has never traded for anything since his arrival in January and that if he were to make a trade, I have the impression that it would be to help the team in the medium and long term.
What do you think about it?
We can look at the Los Angeles Kings, who don't know what to do with their defensemen, especially right-handed ones, because they have too many of them. To be continued!
