The Montreal Canadiens may be in the thick of the Atlantic Division playoff race but that might not mean they won’t look to move some players out before the deadline.
The Montreal Gazette speculates that defenceman Raphael Diaz could be a contract casualty before Mar. 5, as the Swiss puck-mover is a pending unrestricted free agent.
Diaz – who has 11 assists through 46 games this season could get priced out of Montreal, whose top priority of the summer will likely be getting P.K. Subban’s name down on another contract.
