Guys stop saying Dadonov, Hoffman, Drouin and Armia will be traded before opening... Both three are cap dumps, which means habs would have to pay something to get rid of them.
Habs are rebuilding, they need all their picks/prospects for their rebuild, they wont spend assets to get rid of contracts they dont need. Habs aren't in cap hell so there is absolutely no rush to trade anyone. We will likely wait until cap dumps contracts ends. Drouin and Dadonov walks after this year (maybe HuGo will find a trade partner for them at TDL with 50% retention, but they wont pay anything to get rid of them).
As for Hoffman, Armia, Gallagher they aren't problems up to now since we don't struggle to fit under cap yet. The day that cap dumps will prevent us from signings our young guys (Caufield, Guhle, Slaf) they will be pushed out.
