What Montreal Canadiens should do in the Offseason

The Montreal Canadiens had a disastrous season, but they can turn it around in the offseason, and build to be better next season. These are the moves that I would make if I were GM of the Montreal Canadiens.

Before the 2022 Draft, a few trades are made

Montreal Canadiens trade Jeff Petry to the Carolina Hurricanes for Ethan Bear, Ryan Suzuki, 1st round pick '23.

The Hurricanes improve their defense with the addition of Jeff Petry, while the Canadiens get Ethan Bear, Ryan Suzuki, and a 1st round pick next year.

The Canadiens also trade Jonathan Drouin, and Mike Hoffman to the LA Kings for Gabriel Vilardi, Jaret Anderson Dolan, 2nd round pick '22.

The Kings get Jonathan Drouin and Mike Hoffman, two impact forwards, who will give an instant boost to the offense, while the Kings get two great prospects in Vilardi and Anderson-Dolan, as well as a 2nd round pick.

Paul Byron and Joel Edmundsson are traded to the Edmonton Oilers for Kailer Yamamoto, 3rd round pick '23. Montreal retains half of Joel Edmundson's contract for the remainder of the contract.

The Oilers add two veteran players with playoff experience to bolster their depth, while the Habs get Kailer Yamamoto and a 3rd round pick.

At the 2022 Draft, the Montreal Canadiens trade picks 51, 94, 161 to the Buffalo Sabres for pick 41.

2022 Draft

1-Shane Wright

29-Lian Bichsel

33-Ivan Miroshnichenko

41-Seamus Casey

51-Bryce Mcconnell-Barker

65-Gleb Trikozov

97-Jordan Dumais

120-Maxim Barbashev

122-Reese Laubach

129-Ludvig Jansson

193-Tyler Dunbar

217-Noah Greuter

Montreal drafts 8 forwards and 5 defensemen in the 2022 draft with the 13 picks that they have.

Montreal Canadiens re-sign a few players:

Alexander Romanov-2yrs/3.5M per

Kailer Yamamoto-3yrs/3M per

Ethan Bear-3yrs/2.75M per

Gabriel Vilardi-2yrs/1.5M per

Jaret Anderson Dolan-2yrs/1.2M per

Samuel Montembeault-1yrs/1M per

Kale Clague-2yrs/1M per

Michael Pezzetta-2yrs/750k per

Montreal Canadiens re-signed All Non-Roster RFAs

Montreal Canadiens sign the following Free Agents:

Zach Aston Reese-3yrs/2M per

Noel Acciari-1yr/2M 

This is how the Montreal Canadiens lineup looks like at the start of the 2022-23 season

2022-23 Montreal Canadiens










Top Prospects:

F: I.Miroshnichenko, B.McConnell-Barker, J.Roy, G.Trikozov, J.Dumais, M.Barbashev, R.Laubach, N.Greuter

D: J.Harris, L.Bichsel, S.Casey, L.Jansson, T.Dunbar

G: C.Primeau

The Montreal Canadiens are taking a step in the right direction but are still far from being a contending team.

C Sean Couturier -After missing 2+ years, Sean Couturier is back and it seems like he hasn't missed a beat. Believe it or not, Couturier has been one of the top centers in the league so far with his all-around play, putting up 2 goals, 3 assists, 2 PPP, 63 FW, 24 SOG, and 1 SHP. Despite showing that he is still an elite center, Couturier is only owned in 20% of fantasy leagues. Pick him up now, while you still can. Ryan Johansen - Serves as the Avalanche's 2nd line center and plays on their all-world 1st pp unit. Despite not being the player he used to be, Johansen is still a valuable fantasy asset because of the players he plays with. Johansen has 4 goals and 4 PPPs along with 63 FW so far this season. He is owned in 29% of fantasy leagues. Sean Monahan - Someone must have gotten a time machine and put Sean Monahan in it because he is playing like he was back when he was in his prime. Monahan has been arguably the best player on Montreal this year, with 3 goals, 6 points, 2 PP


Here are some players you should pickup in Fantasy Hockey, sorted by position. Center Colton Sissons Colton Sissons is one of the best 4th line centers in the league, but in fantasy hockey, he could be even more valuable than he actually is in real life because of what he provides in the peripheral categories. So far this season Sissions has 5 goals, 1 PPP, 1 SHP, 12 PIM, 20 SOG, 89 FW, 15 hits, and 9 blocks. This is a terrific stat line and although you can't count on Sissons scoring a ton, he will fill out the FW, Hits, and blocks usually. Sissons is owned in 6% of fantasy leagues, snag him up while you can. Nick Bjugstad Nick Bjugstad is having an excellent year so far with the Arizona Coyotes, in fact he has played so well that he earned himself a promotion to play on the 2nd line along with Mattias Maccelli and Lawson Crouse. Bjugstad also gets time on Arizona's 2nd PP unit and 2nd PK unit. Bjugstad may not be a name who stands out to casuals, but his fantasy stat line is

Fantasy Hockey Waiver Wire Goalies to Pickup

 Here are some goalies to pickup now in Fantasy Hockey: Semyon Varlamov Semyon Varlamov has been solid in net for the New York Islanders in the last month of the season; he has a 2-2 record with a 2.35 GAA, .927 SV%, and 153 Saves during that timespan. Even though Varlamov will only get a few starts with Ilya Sorokin there, he has proven to be a reliable backup when called upon. Varlamov is owned in 41% of Fantasy leagues, you should take a flyer on him if you need a goalie with a good GAA and SV%. Antti Raanta Antti Raanta has played great for the Carolina Hurricanes in the last month of the season; he has a 3-0 record with a 1.49 GAA and .946 SV% during that timespan. With Fredrik Andersen back, Raanta will be back in the backup role, but he has thrived in this role and should continue to do so. Definitely, pickup Raanta if you have Fredrik Andersen because he doesn't start every game. Philipp Grubauer Philipp Grubauer has been playing a lot better for the Seattle Kraken in the l
