Josh Anderson should be treated the same as Joel Armia

At the beginning of the season, the Canadian caused a big surprise by sending Joel Armia to Laval. After all, it’s not every day a team sends a veteran to the minors to start the season.

But I take my hat off to the team, who made the best decision. Congratulations also to Armia, who maintained a positive attitude, which ultimately earned her a retirement.

And currently, without being the best player or the best scorer, he is very effective on the second line and short of personnel. We feel that he is much more involved and I think he does not want to return to Laval.

Now why not do the same with Josh Anderson? Why is he immune to the consequences? I understand that he tries, but he doesn’t do anything good on the ice. In 2023-2024, it’s too late to cut him, but next training camp he should be an option to consider.

Steve Bégin, in collaboration with Marc-André Perreault in La Poche bleuewrote about it a few days ago and wants to “make Josh as angry as Joel.”

In 69 games this season, Anderson has only scored eight goals and 10 assists. For a dynamic player of his caliber, that’s very little, especially since when he was acquired a few years ago, Marc Bergevin considered him one of the few in the NHL with this style of play.

I’ll be honest, when he came to Montreal I had high hopes for him. But there is too much in the lineup and his $5.5 million per year contract for three more seasons after this one is a real nightmare.

You can’t afford to have bad examples on your team and ESPECIALLY those who make too much money. Josh Anderson needs to understand that enough of the stupidity is enough! – Steve begins

There is a possibility that the salary cap will increase…

Armia, who is buying years on the Bettman circuit, benefited from his return to Laval. Why not Anderson, who still does not seem to fall out of favor with Martin St-Louis?

A lot

– Indeed.

– To have.

– Patrick Roy’s former house sold for 40% less than expected. (JDM)

– Three-game suspension for Ryan Hartman.

– If Detroit doesn’t make the playoffs…
