As the Montreal Canadiens' training camp is just a few weeks away, many experts are speculating on the possible lineup that will be assembled by Kent Hughes and Martin St-Louis.

According to journalist Arpon Basu, a decision already seems likely.

A player has already been targeted for NHL waivers, and it's Rem Pitlick.

Here's an interesting passage from Basu's recent article:


"I take it for granted that unless there are several major injuries in training camp, Rem Pitlick will be placed on NHL waivers."

- The Athletic

So, don't be surprised if this is confirmed in the coming weeks for Pitlick.

Pitlick, 26 years old, recorded:

-22 points in 18 games with the Laval Rocket last season

-15 points in 46 games with the Montreal Canadiens last season

-26 points in 46 games with the Montreal Canadiens in 2022

Would you be disappointed to lose him for nothing?

He is signed until 2024 and earns $1.1 million per season.
