NHL Rumors: 3 Montreal Canadiens "Not Going Anywhere"

The Montreal Canadiens have made it abundantly clear that they have no intention of parting ways with three players who are firmly entrenched in their long-term plans for the time-being.

Cayden Primeau, the former top prospect goaltender, is considered unlikely to be claimed off waivers if put in that position at the beginning of the season, and it doesn't appear the team would even make such a move at this time.

The 23-year-old has had limited playing time in the NHL, with little success, but has been alright in the AHL, recording a .909 save percentage, 3.04 GAA, and a 19-15-6 record across 41 games last season.

He's still young, and the Canadiens are hoping he can blossom into the talented goalie he was expected to become.

Jordan Harris, the standout rookie defenseman, proved his worth last season by impressively handling significant ice time without any special treatment.

His solid skills have cemented his value to the team, and the Canadiens have no plans to entertain any hypothetical trade scenarios involving him. He is deemed an indispensable asset.

Last season, the 23-year-old recorded four goals and 17 points across 65 games while averaging 18:39 time on ice per game.

Likewise, the Canadiens have no intention of trading Christian Dvorak, recognizing his contributions and value to the team.

The 27-year-old had a down year last season, recording just 10 goals and 28 points over 64 games, however, the season prior he put up 11 goals and 33 points across 56 games in his first season in Montreal.

In addition, there appears to be little interest from other teams in pursuing a trade for him, solidifying his place in the Montreal Canadiens' roster. Photo Credit: Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports
