These are a few of my ideas as to whom, from the Canadiens, has a chance of being traded by draft day. I am not saying they are going to happen, but we won’t see any deals like this:

I am not optimistic that Bob can sign Souray…but if he did, I think he would make a better forward. If he could get 64 pts as a defender he may be able to put up even better numbers up front. He could still quarterback the PP and he wouldn’t be such a liability on D. (He would also and grit)

After numerous reports came out yesterday confirming that Claude Julien, the ex-Devils coach, was hired as the bench boss of the Bruins, the organization has remained silent.
