Hughes just placed 3 players on the trade market and David Pagnotta reveals their identities

Kent Hughes has been busy, to say the least, since taking over as general manager of the Montreal Canadiens.

He made it clear from the very beginning that his goal was to create space under the NHL salary cap. He did just that, trading Tyler Toffoli, Artturi Lehkonen (who would command a significant raise) and Jeff Petry.

Despite these trades, there is still a lot of work to be done on this side and we should expect more players to leave, specifically a forward who earns over four million per season.

Precisely on this subject, according to the information of the very reliable David Pagnotta, of The Fourth Period, the general manager of the Montreal Canadiens, Kent Hughes, would have just added the names of Mike Hoffman, Christian Dvorak and Evgeny Dadonov on the trade market.


Hughes would have identified the three players in question in order to reduce the team's payroll.

There have even been talks about possible trades involving these three players with different organizations.

Remember that Kent Hughes must sign Kirby Dach and Samuel Montembeault, by the beginning of the season. There will be more movement in Montreal!

It seems obvious that Mike Hoffman and Evgeny Dadonov will not start the year together with the CH. One of them will have to leave.

Which one would you trade first?

Remember also that Dadonov was acquired in the trade that sent Shea Weber to the Vegas Golden Knights (they didn't want his salary anymore)
