GM Lou Lamoriello has been busy running the phones looking to circulate out salary so he can finally allow the media know approximately the pending signing of Kadri. ( I wager the alternate rumor never panned out)
But with the news of Price in all likelihood out for the 12 months and Sean Monahan on LTIR, the Habs can have room to pursue Anthony Beauvillier.

The ultra-modern change rumors out of New York have the Islanders looking to change Beauvillier to loose up income cap space.
Could Anthony Beauvillier turn out to be gambling for the Montreal Canadiens?
Murphy of Montreal Hockey Now reports the Montreal Canadiens have interest in a Beauvillier change as he’s a Quebec local.
The Islanders refuse to take any earnings back in a exchange for Beauvillier and simplest need prospects or draft alternatives.

The hassle the Canadiens have is they may be pressed against the income cap and could need to flow out any other participant like Dvorak or Hoffman in the event that they do indeed need Beauvillier.
With many NHL teams already having full or close to full rosters, the Islanders are locating it hard to transport out revenue to announce the signing of Kadri.
The Habs would really like Beauvillier, but they’ve the same problem as the Isles, they need to move revenue out and I am sure GM Kent Hughes might be requesting a sweetener in a Beauvillier exchange for the greater leg paintings Montreal might need to do.
