As the NHL Draft approaches on June 28-29 in Las Vegas, Kent Hughes is once again looking to complete a trade to bring in a young forward with high potential.

He pulled off such moves with Kirby Dach two years ago and Alex Newhook last year. Could this year be the one for Trevor Zegras or Martin Necas?
However, if Hughes thought he might get a good deal, he can now forget it. He has just received some very bad news from Buffalo, which will raise the stakes.
Indeed, the Sabres have made their 11th overall pick available to the entire NHL and are asking for a top 6 forward in return, just like the Canadiens.
The problem is that Kent Hughes does not have the 11th overall pick to offer, and he does not want to part with his best defensemen.
This means that the Sabres have a significant advantage in this matter, which could hurt the Canadiens' chances of acquiring a good forward at a reasonable price in Hughes' eyes.
The 10th overall pick of the Devils is also available, but their GM is looking for a goaltender, which should not interfere with Hughes.
I'm very curious to see what rabbit the Canadiens' GM will pull out of his hat this time. We are never short of surprises from him.
Will he have the audacity to pay the price to acquire a top 6 forward?
