If the Tricolore can’t free up that money, they’ll be forced to place Carey Price on the long-term injured list this off-season, something Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton would like to avoid.
One of those questions is Elias Lindholm’s future with the Calgary Flames.
Last season was a very difficult one for the Flames, as they didn’t even qualify for the playoffs, despite having a good team.
They didn’t live up to expectations, with seasons of 55 and 56 points respectively.
The Flames can’t afford to lose Lindholm’s services via the autonomous player market in 2024.
If the stars don’t align on a contract extension, the option of trading him at the trade deadline is conceivable.
The right-handed center’s next contract is rumored to be in the neighbourhood of $9 million per season.
Maxime Comtois to join Vegas Golden Knights
According to Marc-Olivier Beaudoin, Quebec’s Maxime Comtois could soon land a professional trial with the Golden Knights.
I’m told Maxime Comtois could land a professional tryout (PTO) with the Vegas Golden Knights. Nothing official yet, but it’s looking that way!

If an NHL team takes a chance on Comtois, we can expect that he won’t be implicated in the scandal after all.
What does the future hold for Evgeny Kuznetsov and Anthony Mantha?
– Spector’s Hockey (@SpectorsHockey) September 2, 2023
The Washington Capitals would like to increase his trade value, because with a salary of $7.8 million per season for the next two years, he’s currently not worth much.
If Kuznetsov performs well in 2023-2024, he could be traded, but he could also be very useful to the Washington Capitals’ playoff hunt.
Quebec’s Anthony Mantha also had a disappointing campaign.
Commanding an annual salary of $5.7 million for another season, the Longueuil native no longer seems to be in Washington’s plans.
He would become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2024 if he doesn’t extend his contract with the team, which would make him attractive as a rental player at the trade deadline.
In short, the next few weeks should be busy for a number of clubs. There are a number of interesting rumours, and we can’t wait to see how they unfold.

– Too bad for CF Montreal. Vilsaint once again made his mark with a fine performance.
Once again, Jules-Anthony Vilsaint was @cfmontreal ‘s most electric, dynamic and dominant player For anyone who for the past 6 1/2 months has doubted or laughed at the guy who said he would be, you can send your apologies here. Thanks 😎 #cfmtl pic.twitter.com/AoOK9hRRxu

– Nice run by Stanback.
William Stanback’s 69-yard touchdown run is the longest of his career. His longest run (without a touchdown) was 72 yards (in 2018).@RDSca
