Jeff Petry will be traded, possibly after July 13th

TSN 690 has adjusted its programming since the departure of Tony Marinaro (towards the French-speaking market). Mitch Gallo and Sean Campbell are now at the helm of a show called Campbell versus Gallo broadcast from 10:00 to 14:00 every day of the week.

Dennis Bernstein and David Loaf of The 4th period are regular guests of this show twelve o’clock.

On Monday, Pagnotta spent about twenty minutes on the air with Mitch Gallo and Sean Campbell… and he went there with a statement that leaves (almost) no doubt in his eyes: Jeff Petry Sara traded during the off season.

Loaf was questioned about the future of two Canadian players: Jeff Petry and Josh Anderson

Remember that Pagnotta made his reputation for being relatively close (and well immersed) to players thanks to his lifestyle and his popular magazine a few years ago.

Jeff Petry : Pagnotta is confident that Petry will be traded ahead of the first game of the 2022-23 season. He has already played his last game with the Canadiens according to Pagnotta, who does not see how # 26 can return with the Habs.

Let’s summarize the words of Pagnotta.

According to Loaf, Petry would still have a not worse / good market value and several teams have shown some interest in Jeff Petry since the end of the regular season. That in shape with what Kent Hughes said last week saying he was starting to get calls about Petry.

Surprising fact : Loaf believes that Petry can be traded AFTER the project e AFTER the opening of the free agent market. How come ? Because the teams interested in his services probably have plans A that could fail. They could then turn to Petry, as reported by JB Gagné on the fans’ website GoHabsGo. But it could also be traded during the repechage presented in Montreal …

We think of the Stars with John Klingberg, the Penguins with Kris Letang, the Red Wings, the Flyers… all American teams, by the way.

But let’s not tie the Rangers to Petry, okay?

I must remind you that Petry has had a difficult season away from her family due to our COVID-19 restrictions and our passport offices our health system – and who asked the Canadiens to leave last season? Those things – and the risk of the restrictions returning to Canada in 2022-23 – have not disappeared after the appointment of Martin St-Louis to replace Dominique Ducharme. Seeing Petry in Montreal in October would be special. Is Petry really the leader you want to build your team around?

Petry’s situation reminds me of Max Pacioretty from a few years ago. Pacioretty had been traded just before the campaign started, after several months of (summer) distraction in Montreal.

But at $ 6.25 million a season for another three years, Kent Hughes will have to be excellent (and creative) not to have to give up on choice / hope or accept another hefty contract in exchange for his big # 26.

Remember that Hughes planned to replace Petry with a veteran, not a young rookie. But do you still believe in the possibility of seeing Kris Letang land in Montreal? Not me…

Josh Anderson : Barring an incredible offer, Josh Anderson will return to Montreal next season. He loves the city, brings something different / rare and Kent Hughes likes it. Though ultimately, the Canadian hopes to see Josh Anderson produce more bout next season, it would take a nice offer to take him out of town …

But be careful! It was the same with Artturi Lehkonen and we know the rest …

Pagnotta is convinced that there will be other transactions to the Canadian. It remains to be seen who …

Mike Hoffman could also leave the Canadian according to Pagnotta.

The next few weeks will be extremely interesting for the Canadian.

Lot of

– Like the teams will treatwith talented little forwards and offensive defenders in the project?

– Race # 4 in the Lightning: Kucherov in uniform, but not Point.

– Darcy Kuemper, not Pavel Francouz, will leave tonight.

– Andrew Brunette will have options outside of Florida.

Boom!
