Allen Plays Well, Helps Kent Hughes For Potential Trade


As you're aware, Jake Allen's recent performances for the Montreal Canadiens have been nothing short of sensational. It's been reported that many scouts were in the stands to witness his work.

Notably, some general managers were also in attendance.

Jake Allen's trade value has seen a significant surge in recent days. He has demonstrated his ability to single-handedly win games, which is quite remarkable.

The question now is, how much has his value actually increased? This is a topic that TSN expert Craig Button delved into.

According to him, it's almost inevitable that teams in need of a quality goaltender are closely monitoring the Canadiens at this time.

"If you're looking to improve at the goaltender position, there's no chance you're not looking at Montreal (for Jake Allen) [...] I think the Canadiens could receive a significant return in exchange for Jake Allen."

Button is talking about a "substantial return," which is quite encouraging, knowing it's far from what was discussed over the summer.

Two Teams Interested in Allen?


Indeed, the Buffalo Sabres and the Tampa Bay Lightning are two teams to keep a close eye on in relation to Allen, along with the Colorado Avalanche, a team with a big trade history with Kent Hughes.

Button is convinced that Hughes might be able to secure a valuable draft pick or a promising prospect in a trade involving Allen.

However, here's the question to consider: Would you feel comfortable with a goaltending duo consisting of Samuel Montembeault and Cayden Primeau, without the presence of another veteran?

In any case, it's worth staying tuned to the developments, but according to Button, Jake Allen's trade value is shaping up to be quite enticing, and Kent Hughes may look to capitalize on it sooner rather than later.
