The matter of a trade involving Josh Anderson has resurfaced, and this is good news for Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens.

In his most recent article, journalist Eric Engels was asked which player from the Canadiens could be a target via trade for another NHL team looking to unlock a currently underestimated player.
In essence, which current player of the Tricolore could thrive and flourish in a different environment? His answer is quite interesting.

Josh Anderson traded to a team that still believes in him?

Here's what he said, referring to the Canadiens' number 17 forward.
«I think Josh Anderson would be that player.

I know a lot of people have lost faith in him, but I think that's largely because he doesn't fit very well with the team's style of play.

A team with a north-south forechecking style could, however, view Anderson as a perfect reclamation project.

Especially if that team is playoff-bound and needs what he has proven he can bring at that time of the year.» - Eric Engels

Many people immediately think of the Carolina Hurricanes.
As Engels mentions, would a team be willing to acquire Anderson at 100% of his salary? That's the big question, especially since the Hurricanes are already dealing with Jesperi Kotkaniemi's hefty contract.
Josh Anderson, 30 years old, 6 feet 3 inches, and 225 pounds, tallied 20 points in 78 games this season, including nine goals. In his NHL career, he has accumulated 223 points, including 131 goals, in 535 games.
Anderson is signed through 2027, at 5.5 million dollars per year.

It will be interesting to see if another team takes a chance on Anderson this summer, especially since power forwards are in high demand in the NHL right now.
