Kent Hughes has his nose in several files and he won't let go to acquire Trevor Zegras, Martin Necas or... Nikolaj Ehlers!

Indeed, David Pagnotta just confirmed that the Canadiens' general manager is indeed in talks with the Jets to acquire the speedy forward.
"The latter [Ehlers] could be traded elsewhere during the offseason. There are several names surfacing in the file, as mentioned by The Fourth Period. There are (notably) the Hurricanes, the Islanders, the Bruins,

and the Canadiens." - Charles-Alexis Brisebois

Obviously, the Hurricanes must be heavily in the mix, as they have Martin Necas to offer in return. For the Canadiens, it all depends on what the Jets want, but it's likely they want immediate reinforcement.
Remember that both Mark Scheifele and Connor Hellebuyck signed contract extensions last year to win in Winnipeg. Losing Ehlers for prospects or picks is therefore not the club's priority.
Kent Hughes has defensemen to offer, which weighs in the balance, as the Jets' defense is quite unstable. Also, it's worth noting that Rutger McGroarty is on Hughes' radar. It might be him that Hughes is keen on, not necessarily Ehlers.
