Kent Hughes has the perfect opportunity to acquire a star goaltender

BY MARCO    JUNE 4, 2023  (8:14 PM)
The future looks bright for the Canadiens. However, the goaltending position represents a minor setback for Kent Hughes, as the new generation is slow to show encouraging signs.

At present, Jake Allen and Samuel Montembeault share the net, and all indications are that Monty will be the future number-one goaltender. Is he ready to take on the role and the load that comes with it?

We love Montembeault and believe in him, but is the organization as convinced? If Kent Hughes has any doubts, he now has an option in Anaheim.

Star goaltender John Gibson has asked for a change of scenery.



Obviously, Jake Allen would theoretically have to be sacrificed for such a scenario to occur. Number 34 is a good veteran and is much appreciated by the team's entourage, but it has to be said that he didn't deliver the goods, conceding early goals galore last season.

Kent Hughes has a lot of decisions to make, and with the salary cap only going up by 1 million again this year, that's not about to change.
