For the most part, it seems the Montreal Canadiens and general manager Marc Bergevin are done their offseason shopping. 

The team currently has $4million in cap space which will grow after Karl Alzner, Dale Weise and others are sent to the AHL because the team is currently listed with 25 roster players. 

That doesn't give Bergevin and the Habs' much wiggle room to bring anybody else on board, but he can't stop free agents from knocking. 

According to The Athletic, Jason Pominville would like to join the Montreal Canadiens if the opportunity is there. 

His agent, Normand Dupont, said that he would be a good replacement for Andrew Shaw who the Habs' traded earlier in the summer. 

“I think Montreal, since losing Andrew Shaw , really hasn’t replaced him,” Dupont said. “Obviously, Jason would listen carefully [to an offer].”

It's hard to see the aging Pominville fitting in with the Canadiens as he's slowed down and so has his production. 

The 36 year old was still able to score 16 goals last year but registered one of his lowest point totals with just 31. 

During his 14 years in the NHL he has 727 points in 1060 career games, do you think he would be a good veteran addition to the team?
