Last Thursday was a very big day for the Montreal Canadiens, as Kent Hughes completed a trade with the Calgary Flames.
It was recently the turn of Flames general manager Brad Treliving to react to the trade, and he commented on it by admitting that he is really disappointed in one thing:
Treliving goes on to explain that he really would have preferred to find another solution, but he had to do it very quickly (in order to sign Nazem Kadri) and Kent Hughes was his only quick option.
So he decided to fold, figuring it would give him a chance to get his hands on Kadri, a player with 87 points (in 71 games) last season.
This is obviously very positive for Montreal Canadiens fans, because we realize that Hughes took full advantage of the situation to make Calgary pay and to strike, shall we say, a blow for the organization.
In addition to a free first round pick, the CH gets Sean Monahan for free :
We are really looking forward to seeing him in action! Remember, he's only 27 years old and had 82 points and 34 goals (in 78 games) in 2019. At the time, he was one of the best first centers in the NHL.
