RUMOR: Jonathan Drouin might leave Montreal soon!

Published February 17, 2022 at 11:35

The next few weeks will be very eventful within the Montreal Canadiens' organization. Players will be traded, and with the departure of Tyler Toffoli for Calgary and the fairly imminent departure of Ben Chiarot, things have already started.

It makes you wonder how many players who currently wear the Habs uniform will be there to start the next season.

We've had our share of speculation, especially since the arrivals of Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton, but we now have more and more information about their intentions.

While appearing on TSN 690 Wednesday morning, insider Darren Dreger said Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton are putting together a list of players they would like to trade, and another list, with the names of those they'd like to keep on the team long-term, to be part of rebuilding the team.

Among the players they would like to keep, Dreger mentioned the names of Brendan Gallagher, and Josh Anderson, as well as, unsurprisingly here, the names of Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield.

Now, on the list of players Hughes and Gorton would like to swap, here are the names mentioned by Dreger:

-Mike Hoffman

-Christian Dvorak

- Artturi Lehkonen (unsurprisingly)


-Jonathan Drouin

Do you agree with these four names?

It's worth mentioning that this doesn't automatically mean that these four players will be traded by the trade deadline, but the odds are good, especially if the interest is there in the NHL.
