The Montreal Canadiens appraoch the trade deadline as clear sellers after losing four straight games last week. Tomas Tatar is one player that needs to be put on the trade block.

Potential trade pieces showed their mettle on Saturday

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports Tanking or not, some of the Canadiens’ deadline assets made good impressions on Saturday. Losing is no fun. Blowing a three-goal lead and losing in overtime after a non-call infuriated everyone in a Canadiens sweater after a maddening night of officiating? Even worse! On the positive side of things, some of the players who will be available at the NHL Trade Deadline acquitted themselves in a good way against the Dallas Stars. If the likes of Tomas Tatar and Jeff Petry are not available, that leaves names like Nick Cousins, Nate Thompson, and Dale Weise...

In the second period of the game between the Montreal Canadiens and Arizona Coyotes, Tomas Tatar attempted to put the puck on net, but had it deflect off a defender into the face of Phillip Danault.

The Montreal Canadiens shouldn’t wait to trade Jeff Petry or Tomas Tatar

Jeff Petry and Tomas Tatar may not be with the Montreal Canadiens for the foreseeable future. If teams are calling on them, they should pull the trigger.

Should the Canadiens consider trading Tomas Tatar?

Photo by Devin Manky/Icon Sportswire via The Canadiens have a chance to sell high on Tomas Tatar, but should they take it? We haven’t heard much from Marc Bergevin and company on the trade front this season. Outside of the Marco Scandella acquisition — which was paired with the departure of Mikey Reilly — the Montreal Canadiens have remained rather quiet. Bergevin has made it quite clear that he’s not interested in selling the farm to try and make the playoffs. In fact, his surprise acquisition of Ilya Kovalchuk suggests that he might be trying to make the playoffs without...

Tomas Tatar continues to be a wellspring of offence

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via With three points on Thursday night, the winger further extended his team scoring lead. Tomas Tatar was a lightning rod for a lot of criticism in the early going of this season, the offence was mostly intact, but he had a nasty habit of racking up penalty minutes by the boatload. After a demotion down the lineup, and a moment to refocus, the Tatar of last year has come back to the fore. The Montreal Canadiens went down a goal late in the first period, and it ended up being Tatar who brought them right back into the game. He weaved around a defender, waited...
