The increase in the NHL salary cap, potential expansion as well as the next draft are also among the topics discussed by the panelists.

I’m quite surprised that the Canadiens organization made the gesture, because we seemed to really appreciate [Arber] Xhekaj. But in absolute terms, I think that a stint in the American League is not far-fetched for a defender who was struggling this year.

Simon-Olivier Lorange

In my book, it is Jacob Fowler who is the future number one goalie for the Montreal Canadiens. I took the time to watch four full games of him this season at Boston College and he really impresses me.

Stéphane Waite

I think we clearly identified the players we wanted to get rid of and with [John] Tortorella, there is something that stands out about the Flyers: they are an organized team.
