With the Rocket continuing to add goalies, we can see that the club has a lot of depth → https://t.co/Y3WM4GWVXU

Cayden Primeau has been the talk of the town for some time now. Of course, the American is labeled as the team’s future goaltender, but his many starts in the big league have been inconclusive to date.
The 2022-2023 season was the last year he could prove himself, because from next season onwards, he’ll have to go through the ballot to go to Laval. And in Montreal, I wonder if the plan is to keep three goalies (Samuel Montembeault, Jake Allen and Primeau) up there…
Unlike last year, the organization has greater depth in front of the net. Kent Hughes drafted three goalies last year, and the Rocket signed Quebec goalie Zachary Émond not long ago. As a result, Primeau may be in his last days with the Tricolore.
A move to the ballot and a claim by another team could revive his career. He could be a Samuel Montembeault 2.0, like…
But not so fast! Marc Dumont would be very surprised if Primeau were to make the ballot (if he were to do so). That’s what the former team employee said in his text yesterday afternoon.

Does a team desperately need a guy like Primeau as a number-two goalie in the big leagues? I don’t know.
Another question to ask: would Hughes take the risk of giving him up at the ballot box? Because he gets claimed, there’s no turning back…

– We agree.
For Guy Carbonneau, Patrice Bergeron’s place is unquestionable!
