3 Potential Free-Agent Destinations for Brandon Montour

Brandon Montour is currently trying to help lead the Florida Panthers to the Stanley Cup. However, once this series is over, Montour will be looking for his next contract, and there is a reason to believe that he will hit the market. If the Panthers can't find a way to keep him around, these three clubs should be in the mix for his services. 

Ottawa Senators: The Ottawa Senators need to improve the right side of their defense if they hope to finally take that next step in 2024-25. With Montour being the top right-shot defender from this year's free agency class, they naturally should have him on their radar. He would give them an impactful offensive defenseman with grit. 

Toronto Maple Leafs: The Toronto Maple Leafs are expected to target Montour this offseason. Like the Sens, they need that high-impact right-shot defenseman on their top pairing, and Montour would absolutely give them that. Because of that, look for them to be in the mix. 

Anaheim Ducks: The Anaheim Ducks could be a surprise team to watch in the Montour sweepstakes. It has been established that they want to take another step in their rebuild and improve their defense. Bringing back Montour would give them a veteran to help mentor their youngsters. They also have the money to give him the kind of deal he is looking for.
