Preparing for the NHL trade deadline | HI/O Show

Our HI/O Show panel is fully prepared for the upcoming events. Gazette columnist Stu Cowan steps in as host this week, replacing CBC DayBreak’s Jessica Rusnak. He is joined by former Canadiens players Chris Nilan and Rick Green, along with hockey analyst Andrew Berkshire. Together, they delve into the potential moves Montreal GM Kent Hughes might make—or refrain from making—ahead of Friday’s deadline.

The trade deadline often evokes stress for players, GMs, and even journalists. Nilan and Green share their experiences of being traded both to and from the Canadiens.

The panel also offers insights on the Canadiens’ recent performance during their four-game road trip, concluding Thursday night in Carolina. They discuss coach Martin St. Louis’s decision to bench forward Michael Pezzetta for the last seven games and speculate on whether first-round draft pick David Reinbacher can transition to the NHL next season after a challenging year with Kloten HC in the Swiss-A league.

Share your thoughts in the comments section below and feel free to submit questions for the panel to address in an upcoming bonus episode.
