With the Canadiens, there is congestion at pretty much every position right now. However, there is one particular player we risk losing for nothing on waivers, and that's Cayden Primeau.

Nothing is decided in his case, but let's just say the chances he impresses enough to displace Jake Allen or Samuel Montembeault are slim. Kent Hughes might not have a choice but to put him on waivers or trade him.
This is where it gets interesting.
Mark Spector, a Sportsnet journalist who covers the Oilers, has linked a forward to the Canadiens, as he is in the same position as Primeau. There's a logjam on the offensive end in Edmonton, and Raphaël Lavoie is waiver eligible.
According to Spector, Lavoie has the size needed to help the Canadiens at 6'4", especially when the wingers are relatively small.
"Lavoie is now waiver eligible, which means he would have to go through waivers if he's sent down to Bakersfield (AHL).

Teams like Montreal, who might want to add a six-foot-four Quebec winger to their small lineup, will be watching performances like the one Lavoie put on Monday."

Is a trade involving Cayden Primeau and the Quebec native possible? Personally, I doubt it. However, Jake Evans was linked to the Oilers this summer, and that would make more sense.
Connor McDavid's crew needs a defensively responsible center for their "bottom six", while his departure would free up a spot for a forward in Montreal, namely Lavoie.
