The offseason for the Montreal Canadiens is likely to include the acquisition of a leftside defenseman, at least that's what Habs' fans hope. 

Montreal could likely feel comfortable starting the season with Victor Mete and Brett Kulak in the top four on the left side. 

However according to one report, the Canadiens might be going for a bigger name. 

Anthony Di Marco of The Fourth Period reports that the Flyers have discussed a potential deal with the Montreal Canadiens. 

According to the Fourth Period guys, Fletcher has looked at Andrew Shaw or Paul Byron as a possible return. 

While Gostisbehere had a significant drop in production last year, he also dealt with an injury he suffered in October that lingered all season. 

Would you make this trade?
