Habs Depth Chart v1 – Trade Bait for Deadline

habs-depthchart_v1-01

As of today, the Habs sit idly first in the Atlantic Division with a 99.7% chance of making the playoffs. By looking at the current Depth Chart (January 17, 2017), there seems to be a dire need for another top 6 talent, either on the wing or down the middle, and a left defenseman to pair up with Shea Weber. Contract wise, with Alex Galchenyuk, Alex Radulov and potentially Andrei Markov all needed to be resigned at the end of the year, there will also need to be some cap management done by Bergevin and his team to keep the Habs financially stable. Depth on defense will be a factor, as there doesn’t seem to be much in the closet after the current top 6 in the NHL. One has to second guess the idea of trading either Mikhail Sergachev or Noah Juulsen for immediate help. With the NHL trading deadline right around the corner and the Habs in contention to make a deep run this spring, there is no doubt that Marc Bergevin will be shopping this year. Look for prospects and picks to be trade bait.
