There's been lots of speculation regarding the Montreal Canadiens and their forwards going into next season. 

Reports have come in that Max Domi has played his last game for the Canadiens from reporters like Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette. 

However those reports might prove to be false. 

According to Craig Custance of The Athletic, the Canadiens and Domi have begun negotiations regarding an extension. 

"Domi really likes playing in Montreal and wants to stay. According to an NHL source, contract talks are ongoing. Maybe the better question is just how much do the Canadiens see Domi in their long-term plans? “They want to see more consistency from him,” said one NHL source. "

If Domi signs an extension, would this indicate that Phillip Danault is officially done in Montreal?

It's an interesting report by Custance as Domi still comes in at #7 on his trade board.
