There are all sorts of rumors circulating about Kent Hughes' possible next acquisition for the Canadiens.

Names of top 6 players appear every day. Trevor Zegras, Martin Necas, Marco Rossi, and several others are reportedly on his radar.
Thanks to several insiders, we know Hughes has inquired about Zegras and Necas, but everyone remains cautious. Now, we have a clear picture from David Pagnotta.
"Kent Hughes is engaged in conversations with teams and is exploring some of the proven top 6 NHL players available. He's turning to the wing and wants to add more points to this lineup, which is why we're hearing all these speculations about Martin Necas and Trevor Zegras."

— David Pagnotta

It's now clear that Kent Hughes is looking for a winger, not a center. The GM wants more production on the wings.
Last year, aside from the first line, there were many deficiencies in this area. With Kirby Dach returning, he'll need good support to have a strong top 6 attack.
One thing is certain: Hughes has his eyes everywhere right now and is very aggressive in improving the Canadiens' offense this year.
