Big statement: Cayden Primeau has not said his last word and things are getting complicated for Kent Hughes and the Canadiens

Ever since Kent Hughes made Casey DeSmith's acuisition, all eyes have been on the Montreal goaltending situation. While uncertainty hangs over Jake Allen and DeSmith, Montembeault is guaranteed to stay, while Primeau is already in the running in many minds.

However, plans may not be so simple. According to Laval Rocket coach Jean-François Houle, Primeau is definitely NHL-ready.

That's not what we've seen so far, when his statistics are very ordinary in the league. Does the organization see something in him that we, as fans, don't?




We remember that Samuel Montembeault had the same type of profile as Primeau, before evolving in a big way this season. He always had his place because he was a fighter who never gave up. Is Primeau in the same category?

We'll know soon enough what Kent Hughes' intentions are in this matter, but in light of Houle's comments, we can expect anything.
