Pierre-Luc Dubois Makes a Highly Controversial Statement Regarding the Montreal Canadiens

For several months, Pierre-Luc Dubois was linked to the Montreal Canadiens as his agent Pat Brisson had made a public statement noting that the Quebec-born forward absolutely wanted to continue his career with the Habs.

Finally, on the eve of the draft, the 24-year-old Quebecer was traded to the Los Angeles Kings in return for Gabriel Vilardi, Alex Iafallo, Rasmus Kupari, as well as a second-round pick in 2024, thus putting an end to the many rumors sending him to Montreal.

Moreover, in an interview given to TVA Sports, Pierre-Luc Dubois made a very surprising statement, thereby casting doubt on his real intentions regarding his possible move to the Canadiens. Indeed, the 24-year-old forward mentioned that many rumors circulating about him [his desire to play in Montreal] were not entirely true.

"There were so many rumors. As a player, as a person, there were times when I just wanted to grab the microphone and tell everything. I had to remain patient and positive. Many things that were said, I didn't really say them or I didn't necessarily agree with them. It's part of the job and it can be less fun sometimes." - Pierre-Luc Dubois



Yikes! Pierre-Luc Dubois would therefore have really used the Montreal Canadiens to up the bidding and thus obtain his lucrative $68 million contract. In light of this statement, we are finally very happy to see that Kent Hughes did not want to pay the price asked by the Kings to acquire him.

Sometimes, the best trades are the ones a general manager doesn't make and this seems to be clearly the case for the 24-year-old Quebecer.

DO YOU BELIEVE THAT PIERRE-LUC DUBOIS'S CAMP USED THE CANADIENS TO DRIVE UP THE BIDDING?
