The question posed by TVA Sports was, “Who will be the number one goalkeeper at the start of next season?”
Unsurprisingly, the majority of people voted for Samuel Montembeault (60.3%). He quietly established himself as number one throughout the season, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him occupy the position of true number one next year.
Monty kept goal for the Tricolore in the team’s last four games of the season and did a fine job. His Quebec status also helps him to be a crowd favorite and earn points.
When we say that Jake Allen is out of the CH fans’ minds, we’re not kidding . He received only 6.9% of the votes in this poll. At the start of the 2022-23 season, many saw him as the number-one goalie who could fill in until they found someone stable. That’s what happened, but much more quickly than expected.
Montembeault may not be the Canadiens’ goalie of the future, but he’ll probably do a good job in the meantime.
The problem with Allen is that he’s often injured. If it weren’t for his injuries, he could keep goal for a full season, but he’s fragile. Fans don’t like to see that, and it makes him look unreliable.
His stats aren’t great either. In 2022-23, he had a .891 save percentage and a 3.55 goals-against average.
You’d almost think he’d have to be traded in the off-season. Frankly, it wouldn’t be a bad idea.

Was the Remparts’ late-game tactic on Saturday a lack of respect for the Océanic?
Not according to three coaches I spoke to.
