Final 2021: only 9 of the 23 team members remain in CH

For a year, essentially everything has changed at the Montreal Canadiens. The team has gone from a Stanley Cup finalist to the first pick in the draft. He made several transactions, changed addresses, and then clearly started a rebuild.

And all of this is a perfect synonym for a serious setback to the situation.

Here’s a stat that proves it perfectly: Of the 23 Canadiens who walked the court during the 2021 Summer Final, only 9 remain in Montreal.

Jake Allen and Jonathan Drouin, not being among the players who logged minutes against the Lightning, are not included in this stat.

But the fact is, as mentioned a bit above, there has been a lot of turnover in the Habs in the last 12 months.

From the Canadian’s Cinderella streak to last year’s final, only the following players remain:

  • nick suzuki
  • cole caufield
  • jose anderson
  • jake evans
  • Brendan Gallagher
  • joel armia
  • joel edmondson
  • Paul Byron
  • tortoiseshell price

Here now a list of those who accompanied them, as well as the ways in which they left the metropolis club.

  • Jesperi Kotkaniemi (signed with the Hurricanes)
  • Eric Staal (4 games in the American League in 2021-2022)
  • Phillip Danault (signed with the Kings)
  • Artturi Lehkonen (traded to Avalanche)
  • Tyler Toffoli (traded to Flames)
  • Corey Perry (signed to the Lightning)
  • Shea Weber (traded to Golden Knights)
  • Ben Chiarot (traded to Panthers)
  • Jeff Petry (changed to the Penguins)
  • Erik Gustafsson (signed with the Blackhawks)
  • Jon Merrill (signed to Wild)
  • Brett Kulak (traded to Oilers)
  • Alexander Romanov (changed to Islanders)
  • Tomas Tatar (signed with the Devils)

In total, we are talking about six players traded, and seven who chose another destination when their contract expired.

Obviously, the departure of players like Merril, Gustafsson, Perry or Staal was less surprising, considering that they were rather used “by contract”. It is rather the departures of Weber, Chiarot, Toffoli or Danault that make the difference.

But the Canadian, with the arrival of the Gorton/Hughes duo to replace Bergevin, then that of St-Louis to succeed Ducharme, has gone elsewhere. The youngsters take their place and the gaze turns to the future.
