Should the Habs tank the NHL season in the hopes of drafting Shane Wright? GM Bergevin could look at trading Jonathan Drouin and Paul Bryon.
Should the Habs tank the NHL season in the hopes of drafting Shane Wright? GM Bergevin could look at trading Jonathan Drouin and Paul Bryon.

Last week NHL trade rumors were circulating the Montreal Canadiens were looking to trade Ben Chiarot and Brendan Gallagher.

With the Habs continuing to lose and the likelihood of the team making the playoffs very slim, is it time for the team to tank, trade some assets and hope the NHL draft lottery balls fall the Habs way so they can draft Shane Wright?

Eric Engels of Sportsnet reports the Habs have already taken a step towards Wright with their start, and GM Marc Bergevin can improve their chances of attaining him in Montreal this summer.

Engels went on to say, Bergevin can gauge the market on Paul Byron and Jonathan Drouin and try to move one or both, tell any player playing through injury to rest and heal and anyone in need of surgery to do it now before the Habs hurt their chances at Wright.
