NHL Trade Rumors: The Montreal Canadiens Need To Make A Trade, Any Trade
NHL Trade Rumors: The Montreal Canadiens Need To Make A Move
The Montreal Canadiens are struggling right now, to say the least.
After getting whipped in the Heritage Classic Sunday night, the Canadiens have lost three in a row and the only reason why they're still in sixth place right now is because the Rangers have been worse the last few weeks. Now tonight they get to go into Vancouver, not exactly the best place to break a losing streak.
So it should be a given that the Canadiens are looking to make some sort of move before next week. It could very well be another defenseman, now that Jaroslav Spacek is now out for the season. But the real need is for a forward who can score, specifically on the left wing.
David Pagnotta of the Fourth Period listed off a bunch of names the Canadiens could be interested in, including Dustin Penner and Kristian Huselius. Both of those specifically would make a lot of sense as a winger who brings a lot of offensive punch.
But the fact of the matter is, the Canadiens have to do something. The offense is not going to get the Habs anywhere as it is and Carey Price might be starting to wear down a little bit.
More importantly, the Canadiens made a lot of strides in making the Eastern Conference Finals last season. But if they want it to be the start of something big instead of just a fluke, eventually the Canadiens will have to make a move. And now is as good a time as any.
