The transaction made yesterday by Kent Hughes, who sent Tyler Toffoli to the Calgary Flames, is only the beginning, according to several experts and the Canadians would be heading for a complete rebuild.

Well, according to the analyst at 98.5, Dany Dubé.

The analyst was on air with Mario Langlois, and Martin McGuire, during the program "Bonsoir les Sportifs", and Dubé was quite categorical in his remarks.

«The Montreal Canadiens are going to rebuild, but not by staying in the lowlands and not by being satisfied with little. You can't do that in Montreal. You can rebuild with good young players. People can be patient, but it's still going to take some loud voices around the team. Veterans who are ready to do this kind of role, that mentor. It will take some, leaders and you will have to pay them. [] I am convinced that Kent Hughes has already targeted players and in the locker room, there will not be many left.» – Dany Dubé

Dubé and McGuire also spoke about Brendan Gallagher's future with the Canadiens and the two pundits wondered how long he could still stay in Montreal due to his contract and the fact that he has slowed down a lot over the past year. His name has even been associated with the Edmonton Oilers.

Very interesting comments from McGuire and Dubé, which will set the tone for the next few weeks regarding this famous reset with the Canadiens. Who do you think will be the next player traded by Kent Hughes?
