The clock is ticking for the Habs, as next Tuesday's deadline will be very important for Kent Hughes.

We remind you that the return of Joel Edmundson forced management to remove a contract from its roster in order to comply with the 23-man limit.
In a stroke of luck, Evgenii Dadonov's injury put him on the injured list until Tuesday, giving the Habs' GM more time to make the necessary calls in order to complete a trade for one of their forwards.
The Habs' situation has become almost unmanageable internally, with many of the team's players having to be in the press box when they are healthy to play.
By the way, on this subject, TSN's tipster Pierre LeBrun reported this in his most recent Insider Trading capsule:
"The Canadiens have contacted several NHL clubs to try to create a trade to address their surplus of forwards.

Whether it's Evgenii Dadonov, Jonathan Drouin, Mike Hoffman or others, the Canadiens have too many players up front.

There's no question that Montreal is looking to make a move." - Pierre LeBrun

Many teams are actively looking for forwards to fill key injuries in their organization, such as the Flyers, Senators and Capitals, among others.
One thing is certain, barring another very timely injury announcement, Kent Hughes will definitely have to move one of his forwards by Tuesday, either through a trade or by sending him back to Laval, which would possibly involve ballooning depending on the player sent back.
To be continued.
