Jeff Petry will be traded, possibly after July 13, according to David Pagnotta

TSN 690 has adjusted its programming since the departure of Tony Marinaro (towards the Francophone market). Mitch Gallo and Sean Campbell are now fronting a show called Campbell vs. Gallo broadcast from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every day of the week.

Dennis Bernstein and David Pagnotta of the fourth period are regular guests of this to show midday.

On Monday, Pagnotta spent about twenty minutes on the air with Mitch Gallo and Sean Campbell… and there he went with a statement that leaves no doubts (or almost) in his eyes: Jeff Petry. they will be traded out of season.

Pagnotta was asked about the future of two Canadian players: Jeff Petry and Josh Anderson

Remember that Pagnotta earned a reputation for being relatively close to (and well immersed in) players due to his Lifestyle and his popular magazine a few years ago.

jeff petry : Pagnotta is confident that Petry will be transferred before the first game of the 2022-23 season. He has already played his last game with the Canadiens according to Pagnotta, who doesn’t see how the #26 could be back with the Habs.

Let us summarize Pagnotta’s words.

According to Pagnotta, 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 fit with what Kent Hughes said last week saying he was starting to get calls about Petry.

amazing fact : Pagnotta thinks Petry could be traded AFTER the draft and AFTER the opening of the free agent market. Why ? Because the teams interested in his services probably have plans that could fall through. Therefore, they could turn to Petry, as reported by JB Gagné on the fan site. GoHabsGo. But it could also be exchanged during the repechage presented in Montreal…

We can 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?

Need I remind you that Petry has had a difficult season, away from his family, due to our COVID-19 restrictions and our passport offices our healthcare system, and what did you ask to leave the Canadiens last season? Those things, and the risk of restrictions returning to Canada in 2022-23, have not gone away following the appointment of Martin St-Louis to replace Dominique Ducharme. Seeing Petry in Montreal again 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 a few years ago. Pacioretty had been traded just before the start of the campaign, 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 a choice/hope or accept another heavy 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? I do not…

jose anderson : Barring an incredible offer, Josh Anderson will return to Montreal next season. He loves the city, he contributes something different/rare and Kent Hughes likes it. Even if the Canadian ultimately hopes to see Josh Anderson produce more offense next season, it would take a big offer to get him out of town …

But beware ! The same thing happened with Artturi Lehkonen and we already know the rest…

Pagnotta is convinced that there will be other transactions in 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.

A lot of

– How teams it will be treatedwith talented forwards and offensive defenders in the draft?

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

– Darcy Kuemper, not Pavel Francouz, will be the starter tonight.

– Andrew Brunette will have options outside of Florida.
