With the 2022 NHL Draft approaching, negotiations are heating up behind the scenes and the trade market can be expected to get busy soon.

The Kings and Wild have kicked things off with the major Kevin Fiala deal, but that's just the beginning.

By the way, for Montreal Canadiens fans who are wondering, according to several solid journalists (including Elliotte Friedman), Kent Hughes is currently the most active GM on the phone.

Don't be surprised if an important trade is announced this week.


Precisely on that subject, there is some news. According to Montreal Hockey Now, two specific Habs players are currently on the trade market and are reportedly of interest to several NHL teams.

"Several general managers" have reportedly contacted Kent Hughes, with the goal of acquiring Jeff Petry, but also center Christian Dvorak.

As for Petry, according to several sources, he will probably be traded in two weeks. Why in two weeks? Because he will have a better value on the market.

EXPLANATIONS

For teams looking to add a quality defenseman and will be trying to sign a John Klingberg or Kris Letang next week, they will definitely look to Petry (as a plan B), once they sign elsewhere.

In the case of Christian Dvorak, with a possible selection of Shane Wright, his future in Montreal becomes very uncertain and surprisingly, many clubs are interested in him. After all the discussions surrounding Mike Hoffman and Josh Anderson, the first one to leave could well surprise us and be Dvorak.

It will be interesting to watch!
