How fun would it be to see the son of one of the best trash talkers in the history of the game come play for the team his dad was drafted by?

Brendan Lemieux has nothing on his dad Claude. Offensively, Claude Lemieux is miles above his son Brendan, but that doesn’t mean they are not similar players.

The Junior Lemieux comes with the similar hard hitting, trash talking, aggressive style than his dad. He’s not afraid to throw a few knuckle sandwiches when needed as well.

With Michael Pezzetta seemingly penciled in as the Canadiens’ regular 4th liner, adding Lemieux on the other side could definitely add some much needed sand paper to the roster.

He won’t cost a fortune even if he is enjoying moderate success with the LA Kings and he won’t be putting up huge numbers offensively. However, Pezzetta and Lemieux being put under the tutelage of Brendan Gallagher, another famous gritty trash talker, as well as Josh Anderson and Alexander Romanov who isn’t afraid to throw their weight around, can not only bring some sparks on the ice, but it can make opposing players think twice before hitting Nick Suzuki or Cole Caufield.
