A recent trade scenario between the Calgary Flames and Montreal Canadiens is aking rounds on the web.

Potential Game-Changing Trade: Flames and Canadiens to Make Major Deal?

The spotlight in Montreal shines on Brendan Gallagher as he started his season with great performance. He has seven points in just 12 games, already matching half of his last year's total, sparking conversations about his rising value on the market.


A reporter shared a scenario with the Flames, involving Jonathan Huberdeau.

Possible Blockbuster Trade with Huberdeau, Gallagher, and Anderson?

In this proposed trade, the Canadiens would also part ways with Josh Anderson. Despite a challenging season with only one point in 12 games, Anderson remains a sought-after player in the trade market, known for his speed, strength, and offensive threat.

However, it would be surprising to see such a deal happen. The financial implications of absorbing Huberdeau's contract, which is currently viewed as one of the worst in the era of the salary cap, might discourage the Canadiens to take him on, especially in return of two of their most respected leaders.

MTL probably says no, I love Huby, but his contract looks like one of the worst of the salary cap era right now; it seems like wishful thinking that a simple change of team would fix it.


Calgary might consider other options for Huberdeau if his performance doesn't improve soon.

Do you think Huberdeau will be traded out of Calgary?
