Kent Hughes intends to improve the Canadiens by acquiring a promising young forward. His target could very well be Martin Necas.

At least that's what Renaud Lavoie suggests. During the Hurricanes' visit to the Bell Centre, the journalist made quite a statement.

After Sebastian Aho and Jesperi Kotkaniemi, both of whom received an offer sheet from the opposing team, could Necas be next?

"It may not be over yet."


Could the Canadiens extract one of Raleigh's good young players from the lineup?

"Martin Necas is a restricted free agent at the end of the season. In the NHL, the word is that he's a player who would like to be with another team."

"Could he be the next player to join the Canadiens?" - Via TVA Sports

Personally, I don't believe Kent Hughes would do such a thing. Given that the relationship between the two teams is fragile already, the Canadiens' GM must tread carefully.

However, this doesn't rule out the possibility of a trade. While the Hurricanes' GM may have a long memory, he remains a professional and understands that the Canadiens' management is no longer the same.
