Josh Anderson has been in the NHL trade rumor mill for the past year but no trade. Anderson, 28, is a big body player that every team wants, that is why there are always rumors flying around his name.
With the NHL trade deadline fast approaching, playoff contenders are contacting Habs GM Kent Hughes on Anderson’s availability.
Flames interested in Josh Anderson
Darren Dreger was on TSN’s Insider Trading segment and stated that Josh Anderson is NOT available for a trade UNLESS a team makes an offer that GM Kent Hughes simply cannot refuse.
Dreger went on to say in his TV hit that the Calgary Flames had interest in an Anderson trade last summer but the Habs preferred to keep him.
Anderson has a $5.5 million Habs salary cap hit until the 2026-27 season and if the Flames want him, they will have to pay a big price to acquire him.
