Bold prediction from a Bleacher Report columnist: Carter Hart in Montreal

Ever since Daniel Brière openly stated that Carter Hart was not untradeable, Montrealers have been speculating, and rightly so. Hart is a Canadian goalie, and his style of play has always been compared to that of Carey Price.

So the links to Montreal are easy to make, aren’t they?

However, with the emergence of Samuel Montembeault, we’re not going to empty the hope bank for a guy who may be in trouble… #TeamCanada

Obviously, if he’s implicated in the Team Canada scandal, Kent Hughes and the other 30 general managers will stay out of it. But if, at the end of the investigation, the goalie is shown to be innocent, Hughes could turn his attention to the goalie.

Elliotte Friedman has already linked the CH to the goalie, and now it’s the turn of Lyle Richardson, a fairly credible columnist in the field hockey world, to link Hart to the team. He made five bold predictions for next season. Of these, Hart will be a member of the Tricolore.

Check out these four other predictions:

Earlier this summer, Arpon Basu said that the CH would not be exploring Carter Hart Avenue.

So it will be interesting to see if Hughes is really in the running to get him. One thing’s for sure: he’ll have to give to get. Last June, a source close to Flyers activities said the team would ask for at least two first-round picks.

That’s not the price the Montreal GM will pay, I guarantee it.

Contrary to Brière’s demands, Richardson thinks that a return smaller than two first-round picks would be sufficient. He wrote in the text above that Hughes could give Jake Allen OR Casey DeSmith and two second-round picks in 2025 OR a promising prospect, among others.

Obviously, it would take more, but it’s already a good base.

Last year, Carter Hart maintained a .907 efficiency average and a 2.94 goals-against average. These are excellent numbers, but come next season, he’ll be playing with one of the NHL’s worst teams. Good luck to him, then.


– Tom Brady returns to Boston.

– This was to be expected.

– Big win for the Jays.
