Ridiculous scene in the CH locker room: Players have to stay in the room during games because of lack of space at the Bell Centre

The main topic of discussion for the CH, since the beginning of the season, is certainly the injuries. The infirmary is overflowing with patients and the bleeding does not seem to stop.

If the club saw Brendan Gallagher and Kirby Dach come back to play last Tuesday, it was Josh Anderson's turn to get seriously injured. His condition seems to be serious enough that he will not be back in the game this season. He will join Cole Caufield, Juraj Slafkovsky, Joel Armia, Christian Dvorak, Jake Evans and Sean Monahan, as well as defensemen Kaiden Guhle, Jordan Harris and Arber Xhekaj. Not to mention goaltender Carey Price and forward Paul Byron who have been on the long-term injury list since the beginning of the season.

On the subject of the many injured players, Gallagher sadly stated that there isn't even enough room in their section of the press box for them to attend all the local games.




There are so many injuries on the team right now that there isn't even enough room for all the players to attend the games.

Some players now have to stay in the locker room during games at the Bell Centre and watch the action on TV. It's sad to say, but it's currently the reality." - Brendan Gallagher

That says a lot about how ridiculous this situation is.

A video released by Sportsnet on March 13, while Gallagher was still on the injured list, proves his point very well.


The situation will definitely have to be fixed in the next few seasons if the plan is to become competitive. It will be impossible to be competitive with so many injuries.

As of March 17, according to the excellent NHL Game Lost, Montreal had lost 590 games to injury. They were followed by the Leafs (485). Last season, 2021-2022, the CH had also finished 1st on this unfortunate list with 731 games lost...

Do you think the CH should buy out Gallagher's contract?
