Major trade for a Montreal Canadiens goaltender: Kent Hughes has just confirmed that a very big decision is still to be watched

While Kent Hughes has answered questions from journalists in the last few hours as part of the NHL GMs meeting, see another very interesting topic addressed.

The famous three-goalie rotation.

«It's not an emergency to resolve this issue, even if we don't want it to be like this all season, Kent Hughes confirmed. There are things we must continue to evaluate. But looking at the performance of our goalies, they are among the best in the league so far, so it holds up. And why fix something that isn't broken?»

We receive many questions about this, and it is obviously interesting to have Kent Hughes's direct opinion.

He therefore confirms that the CH will not keep three goalies all season. It is still the plan to make a move at this level.

A trade or waiver placement is therefore to be watched.

Who will be affected? Allen, Montembeault, or Primeau? One of them will have to change addresses anyway.

It's not over causing a stir, especially knowing that a goalie will leave by the end of the season, as Hughes confirmed.

Finally, the general manager of the Canadiens did not want to comment on contract negotiations with Samuel Montembeault. This could force a transaction, as mentioned by TVA Sports.
