Sean Monahan would be in the sights of around ten teams.
At least that's what Renaud Lavoie said after the game between the Canadiens and the Penguins on Saturday.
“I would say there are easily a dozen teams interested in Sean Monahan. Very simple, about ten teams.”
According to Sportsnet source Elliotte Friedman, the New York Rangers would like to add more depth to their center line and Sean Monahan could be their target.
Elliotte Friedman says on HNIC that the New York Rangers are looking for centers and are a team that could target Sean Monahan.

The Rangers are struggling with the absence of Filip Chytil, so support player Jonny Brodzinski currently leads the New York team's third trio.
For his part, Renaud Lavoie does not believe that the former Flames forward will end up in New York.
“The Rangers, I understand why this is 'sweet,' but I don't think there are many people in the Canadiens organization right now who want to help the New York Rangers.”
Monahan undoubtedly represents the Montreal team's best negotiating tool as the trade deadline approaches.
The veteran, who has been frequently injured in recent years, took part in all of the team's games this season and cut a very good figure; In 49 games he collected 35 points, including 13 goals.
He will be an unrestricted free agent this summer.
