Jacob de la Rose has been assigned to the Hamilton Bulldogs, and with that the Canadiens have made their final cut to the main roster, set at 23 players still with the big club.

There was speculation that there would be a trade coming after Marc Bergevin said he was working on something, but evidently he couldn't get that done in time for the deadline to get your roster set for the NHL season. It's still possible that we could see someone like Travis Moen moved out in short order though.

Here is your Montreal Canadiens roster for the 2014-15 season:

Player Position 2013-14 Club
Carey Price G Montreal Canadiens
Dustin Tokarski G Montreal/Hamilton
P.K. Subban D Montreal Canadiens
Andrei Markov D Montreal Canadiens
Tom Gilbert D Florida Panthers
Mike Weaver D Florida/Montreal
Alexei Emelin D Montreal Canadiens
Nathan Beaulieu D Hamilton Bulldogs
Jarred Tinordi D Hamilton Bulldogs
Max Pacioretty LW Montreal Canadiens
Jiri Sekac LW Prague Lev
Travis Moen LW Montreal Canadiens
Michael Bournival LW Montreal Canadiens
Brandon Prust LW Montreal Canadiens
David Desharnais C Montreal Canadiens
Tomas Plekanec C Montreal Canadiens
Lars Eller C Montreal Canadiens
Alex Galchenyuk C Montreal Canadiens
Manny Malhotra C Carolina Hurricanes
Brendan Gallagher RW Montreal Canadiens
P.A. Parenteau RW Colorado Avalanche
Dale Weise RW Vancouver/Montreal
Rene Bourque RW Montreal Canadiens

The Canadiens have an average age of 27.5 years old, as compared to last year's opening day roster having an average age of 28.7 years old. The Canadiens are a younger, bigger, quicker team this year, and have more talent throughout the lineup.

Montreal also has a solid $3,489,167 in cap space remaining, which is a huge amount if they're looking to add at the deadline, and if they're able to move Moen without taking salary back outside of filling the roster spot with say, Bowman, they would have $4,764,167 in cap space, more than enough to add two huge pieces at the deadline. It's going to be an exciting season for Canadiens fans.
