What a week it's been for Montreal Canadiens' fans.
Social media has blown up with reports attaching the Canadiens' to pending free agents Erik Karlsson and Matt Duchene.
There was a bit of water thrown on the Karlsson fire yesterday though when TVA Sports' Renaud Lavoie said there was no chance of the Karlsson report being credible and that Karlsson hadn't even made a decision on if he had any interest in signing an extension with the San Jose Sharks.
With the report continuing to make waves, another NHL insider decided to chime in on it, this time being TSN's Darren Dreger.
Much like Lavoie, Dreger didn't buy too much into it.
Dreger stated while on TSN 690 that Karlsson has a very low chance of signing with Montreal.
Dreger on TSN690 this morning said after talking to some people about the Don Brennan article in the Ottawa Sun that Erik Karlsson would like a competitive offer from the Senators & Canadiens, there's a low chance he signs with Montreal and almost zero chance he signs with Ottawa
