Yesterday, while answering the most popular questions from Montreal Canadiens fans, the excellent journalist Eric Engels commented on the possibility of trades involving forwards Josh Anderson and Brendan Gallagher.

See his response.

"I don't necessarily believe they will trade them, but I think the New Jersey Devils could certainly benefit from having two players like that, like Anderson, to solidify their status as title contenders."

There you have it! That answers the question. Many of you have also asked us.

It's interesting to note that the Devils' name comes up again, they who were (according to many) the most aggressive team in the past to acquire Anderson.

According to some rumors, a first-round pick was even offered to Kent Hughes by New Jersey for Anderson.

In short, this discussion could resume near the trade deadline, depending on the Canadiens' position in the standings, but currently, it does not seem to be an option.

Anderson, 29 years old, who earns 5.5 million per year until 2027, has accumulated one point in 9 games this season.

Gallagher, 31 years old, who earns 6.5 million per year until 2027, has two goals and three points in 9 games this season.

And if it were your decision, what would you do?
