Habsent Minded Episode 2.39: Sell Sell Sell

With the Trade Deadline approaching, the path the team should take is clear.

I was alone on this short episode of Habsent Minded discussing the trade of Marco Scandella to the St. Louis Blues and (briefly) the loss against the Detroit Red Wings.

If there was any doubt to what direction the team should take, it was wiped away with the 3-1 third period lead the team had. This team is a seller, and the prices are good if you’re a seller.

I also talk about which player who is not an unrestricted free agent I would trade, and why. I doubt that Max Domi will get traded before the deadline, but it wouldn’t surprise me if his next contract comes with a team that is not the Montreal Canadiens.

With the Laval Rocket falling out of the playoff race, I also wonder if that will have an effect on how the Canadiens deal with the trade deadline. With less pressure to keep players in Laval to keep them competitive, does this allow for more players to be traded?

Less than a week until we find out...
