A statistical look at Keith Kinkaid’s new role with the Montreal Canadiens

Free agency neither boosted nor anchored the Montreal Canadiens, as some other teams experienced. The much debated move made by the Habs’ front office was the offer sheet to Carolina’s Sebastian Aho, which either would have worked for the team and landed a star player, or it wouldn’t. The net result from the situation appears to be that Aho is staying in Carolina and Montreal moves forward with no penalty for trying, but no roster help, either.

One move that could pan out for the Canadienss went under the radar with all of the attention on the elusive offer sheet: the acquisition of a veteran netminder to help lighten the load of Carey Price.
