While he was still without a contract for the 2023-2024 season, Alexis Lafrenière was involved in numerous trade rumors throughout the summer. However, the Quebecer forward put an end to speculations by signing a two-season deal with the New York Rangers.

After an utterly dreadful training camp, Laffy was the target of very harsh criticism from some journalists. Notably, Larry Brooks from the NY Post stated that the 2020 overall first pick looked like an undrafted player on a professional tryout.

Ouch! A statement that hurts to hear!

Sadly, despite the change in head coach and the various opportunities given to him during training camp, the 21-year-old seems unable to find his offensive touch. In fact, many fans are already calling for a trade from the New York Rangers' management.


Of course, some fans wonder if the Canadiens might be interested in acquiring him. After all, Alexis Lafrenière directly represents the type of player Kent Hughes has been targeting since his arrival in Montreal: a young, talented player who has not yet reached his full potential.

This was a topic discussed on L'Antichambre on RDS recently. Guy Carbonneau shared important information, stating that, in his opinion, Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton had already contacted the Rangers about a potential trade involving Alexis Lafrenière.

"In my opinion, contact has already been made. Last year, we talked about the rumors. If they haven't called, it means Jeff Gorton thinks Lafrenière isn't the player they need, but for me, it would be worth contacting the Rangers." - Guy Carbonneau

Wow! Would you like the Canadiens to acquire Alexis Lafrenière?
