Major trade between the Canadiens and the Ducks involving Trevor Zegras: Another expert believes the fit is perfect

The Canadiens have a significant need for offensive firepower, and everyone is aware of it. Kent Hughes is the first to acknowledge it, and he knows he has to do something to address the situation.

It just so happens that Trevor Zegras is reportedly available on the market, and the Canadiens have what it takes to go after him.

This has been confirmed by several insiders, including David Pagnotta and Elliotte Friedman. Pat Verbeek is reportedly testing the market for Zegras, and the Canadiens are among the top contenders.

Journalist Shayna Goldman has been quite convincing on this matter, and now Craig Button is adding his voice. What they have in common is that they don't work for the Canadiens and are not fans.

It's becoming a consensus among well-connected sources that the Canadiens have a real chance of acquiring Zegras.

Now, the ball is in Kent Hughes' court, but there's no rush. Zegras has two more years on his contract after this season, and Hughes might wait until the draft to make an offer.
