In his article today, where he answers questions from Montreal Canadiens fans, the excellent journalist Arpon Basu, who has good contacts, drew our attention with the following passage.

"It is possible, and perhaps even quite likely, that Christian Dvorak and Josh Anderson will have been traded by then.

However, I imagine that if they are indeed traded, there will likely be NHL-caliber players acquired in the exchange, because the Canadiens consider both these players to have significant value, and trading them for picks and prospects might not be enough.

Nevertheless, these trades, if they materialize, will allow the Canadiens to free up even more salary cap space." - Arpon Basu



There is a lot of interesting information here.

The journalist was responding to a fan's question about possible acquisitions for Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton next summer.

In the case of Anderson, it's more surprising to see that he is still involved in these discussions, but well, we will have to wait and see.

Regarding the phrase "will have been traded by then," it refers to next summer and the opening of the NHL free-agent market in 2024. We know that this is the moment when the Canadiens' general manager will be looking to make a big move.

He confirmed it himself.

So these are two names to keep in mind and who could indeed be traded by Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton in the coming months to make room for a possible major future acquisition.
