While the playoffs and the 2022 NHL Draft are getting a lot of attention right now (and rightfully so), let's not forget that July 13th will be another extremely important date for Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens.

It will be the official opening day of the free agent market (a first for the new CH GM).
Remember that, according to Pierre LeBrun, Kent Hughes would like to get his hands on one of the best players available, but in the end, who are these best players available?
Sportsnet has compiled a list of the 10 most interesting players who will be free as a bird in July.
1- Johnny Gaudreau (Flames): The man whose idol is Martin St-Louis had a stellar season, even being in the running for the prestigious Hart Trophy, awarded to the MVP of the season. He amassed an incredible 115 points, and 40 goals, in 82 games.
2- Kris Letang (Penguins): Probably the one with the best chance of signing with Montreal, according to various sources.
3- Filip Forsberg (Preds)
4- Nazem Kadri (Avalanche)
5- John Klingberg (Stars)
6- Patrice Bergeron (Bruins): He should stay with the Bruins or retire, though.
7- Bryan Rust (Penguins)** : We can now cross his name off the list, he just signed a long term contract with the Penguins.
8- Claude Giroux (Panthers) : Could he land in Canada? Many rumors are pointing in that direction. To be continued!
9- Ville Husso (Blues goaltender)
10- Andrew Copp (Rangers)
We're talking about a very high quality crop here, even an Andrew Copp can be very interesting. He is very underrated.
Which one (or ones) of the above names would you like to see in the Montreal Canadiens locker room to start the next season?
