In a recent paper, we mentioned that Samuel Montembeault's camp would ask for a higher salary than that of Jake Allen. Therefore, according to what Réjean Tremblay reports, no less than 4M $/year would be the target of the Quebec goalkeeper.


In the middle of November, the main party confirmed that discussions were indeed underway, but that a signature was not imminent. New information on this file, this time coming from Elliotte Friedman, mentions that discussions continue between the two camps, but that the CH would have set a certain deadline to conclude the pact.

According to the information, the CH would not want to wait until the trade deadline, which will be next March 8, to close this file.



Montembeault, who will become an unrestricted free agent this summer, is finishing a two-year contract that earns him an average of 1M $ per campaign. In 9 games this season, he has accumulated a record of 4-3-1, a save percentage of 0.908 and a goals-against average of 2.81. It will be interesting to see the final terms of the agreement between the two clans, if there is indeed an agreement.

Indeed, recent rumors have mentioned that the Quebecois could be involved in a transaction. The Edmonton Oilers, who are desperately in need of an effective goaltender, would be very interested in his services.

Update: we have a small battle of insiders. See what Pierre LeBrun just mentioned.
