Recent developments in the NHL have sparked significant trade discussions between two Eastern Conference teams, and NHL insider David Pagnotta has provided a fresh perspective on this intriguing matter.

Pagnotta's Confirmation of Canadiens-Capitals Trade Talks
David Pagnotta, a prominent NHL insider, has confirmed that the Montreal Canadiens and the Washington Capitals are actively exploring a trade deal involving Anthony Mantha and Joel Armia. Pagnotta reported,
"I'm told that the Habs indeed had a conversation with the Washington Capitals about Anthony Mantha, and that forward Joel Armia was part of the discussion."

This revelation follows rumors that the Canadiens have been actively seeking options for Armia since recalling him from the AHL.
Evaluating the Trade's Impact
This potential trade raises questions about which team, the Canadiens or the Capitals, would benefit more from the exchange. It's crucial to consider the financial aspect, as Mantha's $5.7 million annual salary would place additional pressure on the Canadiens' cap constraints. In terms of performance, Mantha accumulated 27 points in 67 games last season, while Armia contributed 14 points in 43 games.
As the trade discussions unfold, the question of who stands to gain the most remains a subject of debate and speculation among fans and experts. The potential trade's dynamics are sure to attract significant attention in the NHL community.
