The offers will ensure the Habs hold onto the player rights as we approach the July 1st deadline

Alex Galchenyuk, Jarred Tinordi, Brian Flynn, Magnus Nygren, Christian Thomas, and Michael Bournival have all been offered qualifying offers by the Montreal Canadiensaccording to Richard Labbé from LaPresse.

En tout, six joueurs qui ont le statut de joueurs autonomes avec compensation ont reçu des offres qualificatives de la part de la direction montréalaise.

En plus de Galchenyuk et Tinordi, Brian Flynn, Magnus Nygren, Christian Thomas et Michaël Bournival ont tous déjà reçu le même genre d'offre du club montréalais. Un septième joueur, le défenseur Nathan Beaulieu, a obtenu le même traitement avant de pouvoir s'entendre avec le Canadien sur les termes d'un nouveau contrat de deux ans, il y a presque deux semaines.

That leaves only Eric Tangradi and Drayson Bowman without a contract or a qualifying offer, meaning they very well could be on their way to free agency come July 1st.

As it stands, the Habs have slightly less than $5M in cap space next season. It's expected that Galchenyuk's new contract will take up the bulk of the available funds.
