Huge NHL Waiver Surprise Involving Star Forward: Canadiens Could Consider Him

Certainly surprising news today as star forward and former standout for the Washington Capitals, Evgeny Kuznetsov, finds himself on waivers.

We're talking about a center who has surpassed the 70-point mark four times, including an impressive 83-point season. Despite slowing down, he still accumulated 55 points last season.

He's a shootout machine with his famous super slow deke, often drawing comparisons to a disconnected Xbox controller when executing it.




With a cap hit of 7.8 million for the upcoming year, along with significant monetary compensation, it would be highly surprising for a team to claim him.

Should Kent Hughes consider taking a chance? Probably not, but if he does, it speaks volumes about his plans for the upcoming season.

If he's in a position where he feels compelled to claim Kuznetsov, it suggests he might not have hope for improving his center position in the coming months.
