At the time of writing, the Canadiens plan to select a promising young forward with the 5th overall pick, but there is another scenario involving defenseman Sam Dickinson.

Indeed, Dickinson is a very popular name for the upcoming draft, having had an incredible end to his season.
He accumulated 70 points in 68 games in the OHL, standing at an impressive 6'3" and 205 lbs.
Moreover, he was sensational during the Memorial Cup, putting him squarely in the spotlight for the draft.
Analyst Marc-Olivier Beaudoin proposed a trade idea, and the results are quite divided.
He suggests trading Kaiden Guhle for a pick that would allow the Canadiens to select Dickinson. So, the Canadiens would keep their 5th overall pick and acquire Dickinson, but it would cost them Guhle.
«Out of curiosity!

Would you trade Kaiden Guhle for a 1st round pick that allows you to select Sam Dickinson?»

The results show 31% say yes, 45% say no, and 24% are undecided. Kaiden Guhle is potentially one of the best defensemen of his age, and 31% of fans would be willing to trade him for a prospect. This highlights the quality of player Dickinson is.
For my part, I would not accept this trade. If Kent Hughes trades Guhle, he should acquire a very solid forward. Trevor Zegras has less value in my eyes.
The main reason I would consider trading him is his frequent injuries. If he were an iron man, he would be untouchable.
