Norman Flynn from RDS proposes another trade that certainly gets people reacting once again.

Here's what he proposed:
«I would tell all the other NHL teams that my 5th overall pick is available on the trade market. If you want it, call me! I'm waiting for offers! I want to trade my pick!» - Norman Flynn.

We all remember his proposal to send Nick Suzuki to Philadelphia in exchange for Wayne Simmonds during the 2020-2021 season.
This time, Norman has proposed trading the fifth overall pick in the upcoming NHL draft for a player ready to help the Canadiens immediately.
At this point, is it too early in the process? It all depends on the offer, but one thing is certain, the Winnipeg Jets' first-round pick that belongs to the Canadiens would be more likely to be traded in a deal similar to that of Alex Newhook than the top 5 pick.
The Stanley Cup-winning teams in recent seasons all have one thing in common; their core group of impact players primarily come from the draft.
We can think of the Tampa Bay Lightning and the St. Louis Blues, to name just a few.
With Cole Caufield, Juraj Slafkovsky, Kaiden Guhle, David Reinbacher, Lane Hutson, and this year's pick, the Montreal Canadiens might have their core coming from the draft.
In short, Norm isn't afraid to get wet!
Turning down a top-5 pick would be risky, but it's not impossible. Remember, the draft will take place on June 29, 2024, live from Las Vegas.
