2 Montreal Canadiens Who Could Be Traded Before 2023-24 Season

Now that the busiest part of free agency is over, trade talk is starting to pick up again. As a result, this series. will go over two players from each team who could be traded before the start of the 2023-24 season.

In this latest edition of the series, we will be looking at the Montreal Canadiens. 

Mike Hoffman: The Canadiens want to trade Mike Hoffman, but they have had trouble finding suitors for the veteran winger. Yet, that could change if the Canadiens are willing to throw in a sweetener or two for a team taking on his deal. There are clubs out there with a lot of cap space who may be willing to do this. 

Joel Armia: Joel Armia has also been discussed heavily in the rumor mill. Similar to Hoffman, his expensive cap hit is what has slowed down a possible move centering around the winger. However, that could change with sweeteners. While playing at his best, he is a solid bottom-six forward who is an effective penalty killer, so there could be interest in him before the season starts.
