As a fan, especially during the summer period, it's always interesting to put yourself in the shoes of the general manager to see what moves we could make to improve the team.

Regarding the Montreal Canadiens, it is no secret that the team is actively searching for the "next Carey Price" and is looking to explore the trade market in case Sam Montembeault is not the long-term solution.
We hope with all our hearts that Samuel can be that solution, but Kent Hughes needs to explore other options.
That's precisely why he has discussed a trade with the Nashville Predators involving young goalie Yaroslav Askarov, and why Thatcher Demko's name has recently been linked to the Habs.
However, there is another option on the market, and what's interesting in this case is that the price to pay is crystal clear.

Dan Vladar available, and the price is known

According to information from The Athletic, the Calgary Flames are absolutely open to trading their young goalie Dan Vladar, formerly with the Boston Bruins.
The asking price? A 2nd-round pick in the next NHL draft.
We like it when it's that clear.
In essence, the goal here is not to start a rumor, but simply to let you know that this option is clearly on the table.
If Kent Hughes wants to acquire goaltender Vladar, all he has to do is send a 2nd-round pick in the 2024 draft to the Flames, and it will be done.
It's worth noting that we are talking about the 2024 2nd-round pick of the Colorado Avalanche, not the Montreal Canadiens' (a big difference).
Would we make this trade? For now, no.
However, it's an option to keep in mind if unfortunately, Montembeault does not have a season that meets expectations.
Vladar, 25 years old, is a 6-foot-5, 210-pound goaltender. He has a career record of 29-14-8 in the NHL with a 2.85 goals-against average, and he has been simply dominant in the AHL.
