The Canadiens will have the opportunity to bring Alex Barré-Boulet to Montreal

On March 1, 2018, the Tampa Bay Lightning signed Alex Barré-Boulet, a player who has never been drafted by a National Hockey League team. That year, he completed his season with the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada with 116 points, including 53 goals, in 65 games. During the spring dance that year, he added 27 points, including 13 goals, in 19 games. Colossal, which allowed him to sign a three-year entry-level deal.

At the time, many people were outraged because Barré-Boulet was in the Montreal Canadiens' backyard and the organization did not see fit to offer him a deal. But the real story is that Barré-Boulet had already said yes to the Lightning when he received Marc Bergevin's offer.

Whatever. Let's get back to the present. Julien BriseBois and the Lightning organization love Barré-Boulet, but the young man will still go back to the Crunch, and then before joining Syracuse, he will have to go through the waivers... The team is certainly at risk of losing him, as he was smoking hot last year with the Crunch, collecting 12 points, including eight goals, in 10 duels.

Honestly, the Habs have a place for a player like that in their lineup. I'd try to claim him, even though the Habs have plummeted in team orders by claiming Samuel Montembeault.

If you don't risk anything, don't risk everything...
