The Montreal Canadiens are expected to make a significant trade this offseason as some of the youngsters are pushing older guys out.
Many believe that Max Domi is done in Montreal and has played his last game for the Canadiens, however he might stay if general manager Marc Bergevin can pull off another trade first.
NHL insider Elliotte Friedman reports that the Canadiens are currently testing the trade market for Phillip Danault.
Danault made some comments at the end of season that really raised some eyebrows and head coach Claude Julien wasn't too impressed.
He's not happy being a third line center and his new contract requests might is too rich for the Canadiens' liking.
Friedman adds that if the Habs can trade Danault first, it's highly possible that Domi actually sticks around.
Elliotte Friedman on WGR550 today: Thinks CGY looked at Ekman-Larsen. Danault's name is out there. MTL checking value on market. Danault's asking price on new contract might be too high. Not happy playing 3C. Possible Domi stays and Danault is moved.
