Joel Edmundson trade rumors
Will a Joel Edmundson trade be coming soon? The Habs have let teams know he is available and the cost is a 1st round pick.

The Montreal Canadiens played above expectations in the first quarter of the NHL season but have struggled the last 10 games with a 1-8-1 record.

The only bright spot seems to be Cole Caufield who is on pace for a 48 goal season.

With the Montreal Canadiens horrid play of late, they have entered the tank nation discussion for drafting Connor Bedard. GM Kent Hughes has also let teams know players like defenseman Joel Edmundson are available for trade.

What is the asking price in a Joel Edmundson trade?

Chris Johnston was on TSN’s Insider Trading segment and speculates that if a team is interested in rugged Habs defenseman Joel Edmundson it will cost a 2023 first round pick.

Edmundson, 29, has another year left with a Canadiens salary cap hit of $3.5 million. He does own a 10-team no-trade clause but may waive for a team that will be in playoff contention.

What are fans saying about a potential Joel Edmundson trade

Teams should definitely trade a 1st for Eddie. He’s a solid veteran and still signed for another season. Big bruising defensive defenseman. 1st round pick +.

Oh god, GM Kent Hughes gonna trade the Oilers 1st for Edmundson

Unfortunately if they get a 1st rounder for Joel Edmundson it will be a 2024 1st rounder. 2023 1st rounders are too valuable.
