Heading into the 2022-23 season, the Montreal Canadiens had low expectations. After all, they finished with the fewest points in the NHL during the 2021-22 campaign. So far this season, they are once again near the bottom portion standings and are expected to be sellers at the trade deadline because of it. As a result, pending unrestricted free agents (UFA) like Sean Monahan, Evgeni Dadonov, and Jonathan Drouin could be on the move by March 3.

However, even with this being so, it also appears that the Canadiens are willing to add pieces at the deadline if it helps them long-term. According to The Fourth Period, the Canadiens are reportedly one of the teams being linked to Vancouver Canucks star winger Brock Boeser.

Boeser could certainly use a change of scenery. The 25-year-old struggled in 2022-23, as he has nine goals and 30 points in 42 contests. Although that is still decent production, the 2015 first-round pick has shown in the past that he can contribute far more regularly when playing at his best. Perhaps moving to Montreal and getting a fresh start could get him back on track.

If the Canadiens acquired Boeser, he would be a marvelous addition to their top six. When looking at a specific placement in their lineup, he could work well on the team’s second line with Kirby Dach and Mike Hoffman. However, he also could be in the running to play first-line minutes with star center Nick Suzuki.

Although the Canadiens will be sellers, they can take on Boeser because his contract does not expire until the end of the 2024-25 season. Nevertheless, we will need to wait and see if the Canadiens will bring him in at the deadline.
