Jeff Petry is trading – possibly after July 13th

TSN 690 has adapted its programming (for the French-speaking market) since the departure of Tony Marinaro. Mitch Gallo and Sean Campbell are now at the helm of a show called Campbell vs Gallo Aired daily from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Dennis Bernstein and David Pagnotta dating The 4th period are regulars here show Midday.

On Monday, Pagnotta spent about twenty minutes on the air with Mitch Gallo and Sean Campbell… and he went there with an endorsement that left no doubt (or almost) in his eyes: Jeff Petry will be traded in the off-season.

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

Keep in mind that Pagnotta earned its reputation by being relatively close (and well embedded) to the players lifestyle and his popular magazine a few years ago.

Jeff Petry : Pagnotta confident Petry will be traded ahead of first game of 2022/23 season He’s already played his last game with the Canadiens, according to Pagnotta, who doesn’t see how the No. 26 could be back with the Habs.

Let’s summarize Pagnotta’s words.

According to Pagnotta, Petry would have another one no worse/good Value in the market and multiple teams have expressed interest in Jeff Petry since the end of the regular season. That fit with what Kent Hughes said last week that he started getting calls about Petry.

Surprising fact : Pagnotta thinks Petry could be traded AFTER the draft & AFTER the opening of the market for free agents. Why ? Because the teams interested in his services probably have A plans that could fail. You could therefore contact Petry, as reported by JB Gagné on the supporters page GoHabsGo. But it could also be traded during the Montreal Repechage…

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?

Do I need to remind you that Petry has had a difficult season – away from her family, due to our COVID-19 restrictions and our passport offices our healthcare system — and that he asked to leave the Canadians 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 succeed Dominique Ducharme. It would be something special to see Petry back in Montreal in October. 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 three more years, Kent Hughes has to be excellent (and creative) not to give one choice/hope or accept another tough contract in exchange for his awesome number 26.

Keep in mind that Hughes planned on replacing Petry with a veteran, not a young rookie. But do you still believe in the possibility of seeing Kris Letang land in Montreal? Not me…

Josh Anderson : Barring an incredible offer, Josh Anderson will be back in Montreal next season. He loves the city, he brings something with him different/rare and Kent Hughes likes it. While the Canadian is ultimately hoping for Josh Anderson to show more offense next season, getting him out of town would be quite an offer…

But beware ! It was the same with Artturi Lehkonen and we know the rest…

Pagnotta is convinced that there will be further transactions with 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.


– Like the teams will actwith talented small forwards and attacking defenders in the draft?

– Game #4 in the Lightning: Kucherov in uniform, but without a point.

– Darcy Kuemper, not Pavel Francouz, will get the start tonight.

– Andrew Brunette will have options outside of Florida.
