Would Tyler Seguin want to play for the Canadiens?

Would Tyler Seguin want to play for the Canadiens?

Thata€™s a question Canadiens fans a€” and maybe even general manager Marc Bergevin a€” might be asking now after the team struck out on free-agent centres John Tavares and Paul Stastny this summer.

Tavares and Stastny made it clear they had no interest in coming to Montreal before signing as free agents with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Vegas Golden Knights, respectively. Tavares signed a seven-year contract worth US$77 million, while Stastny inked a three-year deal worth US$19.5 million.

The Canadiens started last season $8 million under the NHL salary cap after losing free-agents Andrei Markov and Alexander Radulov and will probably be even more below the cap next season. With 25 players under contract now (two above the 23-player NHL limit) the Canadiens are $7.8 million below the cap, according toA CapFriendly.com. The Canadiens should have money to spend again next summer on free agents a€” if any of them want to come to Montreal.

Seguin, a 26-year-old centre, is heading into the final season of a six-year, US$34.5-million contract with the Dallas Stars that has a $5.75-million salary-cap hit and he can become an unrestricted free agent next July 1. In 82 games last season with the Stars, Seguin posted 40-38-78 totals in 82 games and was plus-12. Since being selected second overall by the Boston Bruins at the 2010 NHL Draft, Seguin has 229-276-505 totals in 590 regular-season games.
