29. Montreal Canadiens

Previous: No. 24 

You know things are bad when your captain is on the trade block.  Losers of four straight, the Habs continue to struggle to score goals.  They could get a decent return for Max Pacioretty, who has a favorable contract at $4.5M until the end of next season.  The question is if they can find a partner willing to part with the right assets to get a deal done.  It may be safe to say GM Marc Bergevin is on thin ice.  No pun intended.  Well, maybe.
