TRADE MARKET: MAJOR REVELATION REGARDING SEAN MONAHAN AND THE ARIZONA COYOTES
But the question on everyone's mind right now is whether the CH organization wants to offer him a new contract, or trade him while his value only increases.
Some experts claim that number 91 could bring back a first round pick in a trade and he could sign a new deal with the Habs since he will be an uncompensated free agent at the end of the season.
But as Nicolas Desrosiers of Marqueur.com reports, did you know that we almost never saw Sean Monahan put on the CH jersey this year?
According to information reported by tipster Darren Dreger, during the Insider Trading segment on TSN, the Flames were convinced they had a deal in place during the summer with the Arizona Coyotes to pass on Monahan's contract.
The Alberta team was looking to free up money to sign free agent Nazem Kadri, but for reasons that remain unknown, the deal fell through.
And when the situation surrounding Carey Price became clearer, Kent Hughes was able to take advantage of the fact that his goaltender's salary was freed up and he could pick up Monahan's one-year contract at $6.375 million.
To get his services, the Habs gave the Flames future considerations and it should not be forgotten that Hughes also got a conditional first round pick in 2025.
While a few hockey fans had high hopes for Sean Monahan before the season started, this Kent Hughes trade could turn out to be the steal of the century if he can get a first round pick for his services and be able to bring him back to the Habs via the free agent market next summer.
