Monster NHL trade involving six players: Sean Monahan becomes the most coveted center in the process

It's been about an hour of strong rumors, but it has just been formally confirmed.

Elias Lindholm is heading to Vancouver, and the Flames receive five elements in return.

"To the Flames:
2024 1st-round pick
Conditional 2024 4th-round pick
Andrei Kuzmenko
Joni Jurmo
Hunter Brzustewicz

To the Canucks:
Elias Lindholm" - Frank Seravalli



This is a major transaction, undoubtedly the biggest of the year. For the Canadiens and Kent Hughes, it's also significant, as Sean Monahan's value has just skyrocketed.

"A transaction this early for Elias Lindholm would mean a considerable increase in maneuvering room for Kent Hughes in the Sean Monahan case.

Monahan is the best center available after Lindholm, so teams that 'missed out' will quickly turn to Monahan.

Another bonus: His low AAV makes him a possibility for practically all buying teams. More demand equals increased offers and a bidding war will follow.

Looking forward to seeing the outcome of this story!" - Marc-Olivier Beaudoin

Kent Hughes has until March 8 to trade Sean Monahan to the highest bidder.
