There is little doubt the Montreal Canadiens could fetch a hefty ransom for a healthy Andrew Shaw ahead of the trade deadline. Nevertheless, it might make sense to keep him, if the Habs are serious about making the playoffs this season. Shaw the Straw that Stirs Habs' Drink? Shaw’s offensive contributions to the lineup generally slip under the radar, while his extracurricular activities take center stage instead. However, it’s hard to dispute just how valuable he is once you consider the facts. It goes beyond his versatility as a forward who can play multiple positions up front or even his relatively impressive 24 points (11 goals) in 36 games.

Trade Deadline

Montreal Canadiens general manager did just say he wouldn’t “give up assets for the short term”, but his word has never stopped him before. To be fair, at his press conference earlier this month, Bergevin didn’t rule out making a deal. He just said he didn’t think he would be in the rental business this season, which is logically the right decision ahead of the trade deadline for this specific team. However, in looking to build for the future, he would also be open to “very appealing offers.” Should the right offer come along, here are the five Canadiens who may be attractive to other teams and could be on the move, based on how much sense losing them makes: 5. Jeff Petry While goalie Carey Price is arguably still the Habs’ most valuable player, no player on the team has had more of an all-star-caliber season than Jeff Petry. Poised to hit career-highs in goals and points for the third-consecutive season, Petry successfully stepped up in Shea Weber’s...
