Lane Hutson is one of the most promising prospects for the Canadiens and probably one of the top defense prospects in the NHL. Trading him now would be very strange.

Indeed, he is increasingly being compared to Quinn Hughes, who should win the Norris Trophy for the past season. That's no small feat!
Hutson has broken records and surpassed the marks set by Quinn Hughes, Adam Fox, and Cale Makar in the NCAA. When he joined the Canadiens for the last two games of the season, his potential was immediately evident.
According to Craig Button, Lane would be a top 5 pick if the 2022 draft were redone, even though he was selected in the late 2nd round. It was a steal by Kent Hughes.
The Canadiens need to let him develop for the NHL, which is why a trade for a top 10 pick doesn't make sense to me, but according to Simon Boisvert, it's the thing to do.
"If I'm offered a Top-10 pick for Lane Hutson? Yes, I would do it."

- Simon Boisvert

Apart from the 1st overall pick Macklin Celebrini, I wouldn't accept any other prospect from the upcoming draft, and there are plenty of good defensemen. That gives an idea of Hutson's quality.
Don't worry, Kent Hughes will never do that. Sure, if the Sharks come and offer him the first overall pick for Lane, he will accept, but that's not going to happen either.
