Kent Hughes is about to make a trade, and it's big

Published May 11, 2024 at 7:22 PM

Kent Hughes hasn't hidden his intentions, and he has work to do to improve the Canadiens, especially on offense.

With 5 first-round picks over the next 3 years and a surplus of defensemen, in addition to other picks and prospects, he has very strong arguments to support his negotiations.

In fact, a trade should happen before the draft, according to journalist Arpon Basu.

"I would be extremely surprised if the Canadiens still have their first-round pick from the Winnipeg Jets by the end of the first round."

Names like Trevor Zegras, Peyton Krebs, Marco Rossi, and many others come to mind, with their respective GMs openly stating that they are listening to offers.

With the Jets' pick, which will likely be between 24th and 27th, along with a defensive prospect, the chances of Kent Hughes completing a trade are really good.

A team like the Wild, for example, which is up against the salary cap, would be an ideal partner for the Canadiens.

We'll see by June 28th, but if we rely on the words of Arpon Basu, who has been following the team daily for years, it should happen, and it would be big.
