Trade proposal between the Canadiens and Coyotes involving star player Clayton Keller

Even though we don't expect Kent Hughes to complete a major trade in the near future, it's always interesting to delve into social media and explore the numerous trade proposals made by fans.

While some proposals may seem unrealistic and far-fetched, there are others that deserve some attention. As reported by Alexandre Desrosiers from the Rumeursdetransaction website, there is an interesting proposal made by the Twitter account of Hockey Night in Montreal involving the Canadiens and the Arizona Coyotes.

Here it is:

In Montreal: Clayton Keller and a 3rd-round pick


In Arizona: Josh Anderson, Jordan Harris, a 1st-round pick in 2025 (CGY), and two 2nd-round picks, one in 2024 and the other in 2025.

Please note that this proposal is not an official trade rumor or confirmation, but rather a suggestion put forward by fans.


At first glance, this proposal could make sense, as we know that the names of Anderson and Harris have circulated in trade rumors over the past few months. It is even highly likely that both players were offered to the Winnipeg Jets in a potential deal involving Pierre-Luc Dubois.

As for Keller, his father made a public statement when the new arena plan fell through, stating that his son would no longer play for the Coyotes organization. However, things have since improved, and Keller is expected to be in Arizona for the team's training camp opening in September.

Is it realistic to think that the Coyotes could trade someone who amassed 86 points last season?

It is evident that the organization will have better days ahead in the coming years, and Keller undoubtedly plays a long-term role in the Coyotes' plans.

Furthermore, he is under contract for another five seasons with the Coyotes, with an annual salary of $7.15 million.

In conclusion, it would be surprising if this trade were to materialize during the offseason. However, as we know, we are never immune to surprises with this desert team that definitely thinks outside the box in the hockey world.

One thing is certain, Clayton Keller has reportedly requested a trade, and the Montreal Canadiens, along with Kent Hughes, should explore the possibility.
