The offseason rumours have really blown up over the last 24hrs regarding the Montreal Canadiens. 

In case you weren't aware, the Canadiens have been labelled as top suitors to land pending free agents Erik Karlsson and Matt Duchene.

As expected, Canadiens' fans have gone absolutely nuts regarding the news. 

It's not just Habs' fans who are excited as one of the Habs' top prospects seems to approve one of the rumours as well. 

As Sportsnet posted on their Instagram the story regarding Karlsson hoping to get an offer from the Canadiens', defensive prospect Alexander Romanov gave it a thumbs up. 

Romanov liked the post and with good reason, the 19 year old is a lefty and if the Canadiens signed Karlsson the two could be defensive partners down the line. 

Romanov was the youngest player in the KHL last year and registered four points in 43 games and dominated during his appearance at the World Juniors with eight points in eight games and was named one of the tournaments top two defenseman.
