Kent Hughes has placed two Canadiens players on the trade market

In this sense, there are bound to be signings and/or trades over the summer, and this will be the case for most teams.
In this regard, tipsters Michael Russo and David Pagnotta have compiled a list of players on the market, and both have a Habs defenseman and forward on their respective lists. They are Mike Hoffman and Joel Edmundson.
Seeing Joel Edmundson's name on these lists is no surprise, as the fullback has been in all sorts of rumors since before the trade deadline. Chances are, he's already played his last game in a Canadiens jersey.
As for Hoffman, it's hardly surprising that he's on the market, but Kent Hughes will probably have to keep some salary if he wants to trade him. We think this will be easier to do at next year's trade deadline.
