The Montreal Canadiens have lots of cap space to work with today. Does Marc Bergevin address the second-line right winger hole that has been the team's main point of weakness for a few seasons now, or does he continue on with what has been a shift to a more physical iteration of the team, with Andrew Shaw and Shea Weber the most recent acquisitions?

Several players have been mentioned with links to the Canadiens, perhaps too many to be able to put much stock into any single one. However, the names David Perron, David Backes, and Milan Lucic have been heard from a few different sources as potential targets of the general manager.

Start: 12 PM EDT / 9 AM PDT
