The Montreal Canadiens and general manager Marc Bergevin aren't predicted to land any big name free agents this summer, but it doesn't mean they won't try. 

The Canadiens have been linked to forward Matt Duchene before and it seems they might try and bring him over once again. 

According to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, the Canadiens made a push for Duchene at the trade deadline and will make another play for him during free agency. 

The Canadiens' have plenty of cap room to make the contract work however will likely have to dish out a contract in the 6-7 year range, something Bergevin likely won't be too interested in.

While Duchene didn't log big minutes for the Columbus Blue Jackets during the playoffs, he put up points 10 in 10 games to be exact which included two game winning goals, one of those in overtime. 

The 28 year old put up 31 goals and 39 assists for 70 points this season in 73 games split between Ottawa and Columbus.
