St-Louis would already have an official first trio to start the season, and the result is interesting

Even though only one preparatory game has been played and the first big cuts have not yet been made at the Habs' training camp, Martin St-Louis is still trying to put together the best possible combinations for the start of the season on October 12.

In fact, it seems that the Habs' head coach saw something interesting in pairing Christian Dvorak, Evgeny Dadonov and Brendan Gallagher on the same trio, a mix of speed, finesse and intensity.

A nice chemistry seems to be developing between the three players and this was even reported by two RDS journalists, Luc Gélinas and Patrick Friolet.





Could this combination be on the ice for the first regular season game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on October 12?

Obviously, it's still too early to speculate on the different trios that Martin St-Louis will employ and the three players in question haven't even played a preseason game together yet, but some experts believe that this specific trio could be "official".

Even St. Louis is not shy about it.

Gallagher's speed and intensity, Dvorak's passing ability and Dadonov's finesse could prove to be a nice hidden card for the Habs this year, and while we shouldn't expect it to be Martin St-Louis' first line, we could all be surprised by these three forwards.

Would you like that as your third line? It will be something to watch, but all indications are that these three players will stay together and we may know our first trio.
