It's no surprise that Kent Hughes is being asked for a defenseman in exchange for a forward, and the name that keeps coming up in the rumors is Logan Mailloux.

I understand the other teams' perspective. If Kent Hughes starts negotiating with, say, Sean Farrell, it likely won't carry the same weight as if he starts with Lane Hutson, for example.
In short, the rumors are persistent, but we didn't know the organization's true intentions.
Kent Hughes mentioned he doesn't want to sacrifice the future without naming names, so his response was quite vague.
Paul Byron has now provided a serious clue, and from what he said, we can immediately rule out a trade involving Logan Mailloux.
«If this player becomes what we think he can become, he could be the type of player capable of accelerating a rebuild.» - Paul Byron

At the very least, he understands the game and has no intention of stopping his progress. He's doing the right things, and Byron is well-positioned to speak about it.
Indeed, the former #41 of the Canadiens works in the player development department and also hosted Mailloux.
«He respects the older guys, but he wants to beat them,» explains Byron. «I think that's the mentality to have.

Yes, you're teammates, but in every training session, in every drill, in every repetition, you're competing against each other. And the better you get at it, the easier the game becomes. If you do enough good things, you'll gain confidence. And that confidence will grow with every repetition because the better you get, the more dominant you feel.» - Paul Byron

If you ask me, Logan Mailloux isn't going anywhere, and the organization holds him in very high regard, rightfully so.
