Canadiens Rumors: 3 Potential Landing Spots for Tanner Pearson

The Montreal Canadiens got their selling started when they traded away forward Sean Monahan to the Winnipeg Jets. This is only going to be the beginning for the club, as they are rebuilding and have some pending UFAs who will be moved. One player to watch over these next few weeks because of it is Tanner Pearson. Teams looking for a little experience for their bottom six could call about him, so let's go over three possible landing spots for him.

Nashville Predators: The Predators are going to look to improve their bottom six before the deadline passes, and bringing in a player like Pearson could help them do just that. He would be a potential fit on their third line and could even compete for power-play time if he heats up. 

Los Angeles Kings: The LA Kings could consider a reunion with Pearson. They are having a tough time as of late and could use a bit of a change in their bottom six because of it. If salary is retained, it could be an avenue worth going down for them and he, of course, knows some of his former teammates there.

Florida Panthers: The Panthers could be in the market for some forward depth at the deadline. Their bottom six could use a little more scoring, and Pearson would have the potential to give them that if a change of scenery helps him heat back up.
