The Montreal Canadiens need help on offense, so it would be ridiculous to trade Cole Caufield, but when Leon Draisaitl is in the discussion, it changes things.

We are talking about a forward who has accumulated 850 points in 719 career NHL games, plus 107 points in 71 playoff games. That's extremely solid.
In recent days, Renaud Lavoie mentioned that the German forward has not yet decided whether he wants to stay in Edmonton or play elsewhere in the NHL, as he will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1, 2025.
Several teams already have verbal agreements for trades but are waiting for this verdict before committing elsewhere.
«In my opinion, within a week, there will be trades announced.

If Leon Draisaitl tells the Oilers that he does not intend to return, the Oilers will have no choice but to trade him immediately.»

From this publication, the following proposal was born:
To Montreal:
- Leon Draisaitl
To Edmonton:
- Cole Caufield
- Lane Hutson
- 5th overall pick in 2024
Would you do it?
The fans have spoken, with nearly 1000 votes counted, and the verdict is in. 68% would refuse this trade. That's significant!
It's certain that Cole Caufield is a fan favorite and Lane Hutson has great potential, not to mention the future 5th overall pick which is also promising.
However, I am surprised to see that so many people would refuse. It is a high price to pay, yes, but the Canadiens would have the 2nd highest scorer in the NHL in recent years in their ranks.
Nevertheless, I am happy to see that fans still love Cole and Lane so much. Additionally, it shows a strong vote of confidence in Kent Hughes and the management team for the upcoming draft and their 5th overall pick on June 28.
