Major asking price for Sean Monahan revealed

Will the Habs forward be dealt?



While the Montreal Canadiens have been making strides in their rebuilding process, the anticipated success has not materialized as quickly as fans and management had hoped. This could potentially result in further departures of expiring assets as the NHL Trade Deadline approaches.

Amidst the buzz surrounding goaltender Jake Allen, another name that might be on the trading block for a contending team is forward Sean Monahan. Monahan is currently playing on an expiring deal, adding to the potential intrigue as the trade deadline approaches.

According to NHL Insider Frank Seravalli, the reported price that the Canadiens could ask in return is a pair of 1st round draft picks. 

  • "Boston Bruins: Still looking to fill the void from Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci. Short on assets.
  • Colorado Avalanche: Ryan Johansen isn’t cutting it. If Avs also get Valeri Nichushkin and Gabriel Landeskog back? Look out.
  • Edmonton Oilers: Tough to think of a more ideal fit for Edmonton’s forward group at the deadline.
  • Florida Panthers: The Cats’ third line has struggled to produce a bit this season and Monahan would give them a bump.
  • New York Rangers: So long as questions remain about Filip Chytil’s health, the Blueshirts should be in the market for a third line center.
  • Toronto Maple Leafs: GM Brad Treliving would know Monahan well. He isn’t the same player now, but he’d fit nicely behind Auston Matthews and John Tavares.
  • Vancouver Canucks: They’re on the prowl for a top six forward, but a complementary center would make a ton of sense.
  • Winnipeg Jets: The Jets have played their way into contender status – and Monahan would boost an already stout defensive team."

The NHL Trade Deadline falls this year on March 8.
