Could the Canadiens be tempted by a Sabres goalkeeper?!

The Canadiens are currently running out of goaltenders while Carey Price and Jake Allen are away from the game.

So it's Samuel Montembeault and Cayden Primeau who have to take turns defending the cage of the 32nd roster in the NHL standings.

Instead of giving the net to two young goaltenders, Kent Hughes may well get his hands on an experienced goaltender in these difficult times.

As a matter of fact, 32-year-old goaltender Aaron Dell was thrown into the waivers earlier on Saturday. The Sabres made this decision following the suspension of three games received by the doorman.

So it's quite possible that Hughes and Gorton are calling for Dell to swing by the time they fall. In 12 games with the Sabres this season, he posted an average of goals against 4.03 and an efficiency rate of 0.893%.

Despite everything, this would allow the CH to send its young goalkeeper Primeau to the Rocket, he who has just experienced some rather difficult outings.

In short, it is Sunday that we will know if a new goalkeeper will come to Montreal. If that is the case, don't be surprised if we learn that Primeau has been demoted to Laval.
