And we don’t want that. Not in November 2023, anyway.
The good thing about my first paragraph is that Jake Allen’s name can be replaced by Samuel Montembeault’s or Cayden Primeau’s and the result is the same.
All of which is to say that we’re really wondering when the ménage à trois will come to an end in front of the Habs’ net. Logically, you’d think the easy solution would be for Cayden Primeau to leave… but that’s not happening. And balloting is not an option right now.
So it’s likely to happen via transaction. And as we all know, Cayden Primeau’s name is circulating on the trade market, but so is Jake Allen.
We know that his name has been bandied about in Edmonton in the past, and now it’s Elliotte Friedman’s turn to say that the Oilers and the CH have discussed the Maritime-born goaltender.
If the Oilers see him as a goalie in a tandem, it might make sense for them, indeed. Unless his salary of $3.85 M per season until 2025 is too scary…
It’s worth mentioning, however, that Friedman states that negotiations are not necessarily very advanced. There’s nothing imminent in his case, but it’s still being discussed, since the Oilers really need a goalie. Remember that Jack Campbell was sent to the AHL…
Finally, Friedman has confidence in Martin St-Louis’ ability to develop Juraj Slafkovsky.
– Ah, the Montreal CF…
Montreal CF dismisses Hernan Losada as head coach.
A change of coach at a Montreal soccer club is often like the first snowfall. You know it’s coming soon.

Steve Staios addressed Sens players this week, preaching calmness and stability in the face of a losing streak.
He even had Daniel Alfredsson say a few words too.

– It’s all part of the game.
Sean Farrell is used to the NCAA’s 34-game schedule. He’s about to play 5 games in 7 nights with the Rocket.
His body isn’t ready for it. And he knows it. He’ll do his best.
