A monster trade would be in the works between the CH and the Sens, the 7th overall pick involved

Now that we are literally hours away from the 2022 NHL Draft, the discussions are heating up and so are the rumors.

We've just learned of a good one.

A major trade would be in the works between the Ottawa Sens and the Montreal Canadiens, and the seventh overall pick would be involved.

Kent Hughes has openly mentioned that he would like to acquire another high first round pick, and Pierre Dorion (Senators GM) has openly indicated that his first round pick is available. He has the seventh overall selection.

Dorion even went so far as to mention that there is a 50% chance that his pick will be traded, and Montreal is trying hard! What are the Sens looking for?

A top-6 winger and/or a top-4 defenseman.

In the last few hours, the Sens GM has clearly opened the door to a trade with the Habs:

Pierre Dorion, on a possible trade of his 7th pick to the Canadiens:

"Lots of respect for Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton. If the trade allows both teams to improve, we will consider it."

- Reported by Anthony Martineau

And he adds this:

Dorion also smirks that he's not going to ask for more from the Canadiens (in a hypothetical trade) because they play in his division.

And according to information that is currently circulating, negotiations would be underway between Montreal and Ottawa in this sense.

As my colleague Keven Mawn reports, in addition to the 26th and 33rd picks, the names of Josh Anderson and Christian Dvorak have been raised as players that Dorion and the Sens are interested in.

"I can confirm the rumors first reported by @mdamico and @MTLhockeynow that the #Sens and #GoHabsGo are in intense talks regarding the 7th overall pick. Ottawa really wants Anderson and Dvorak, we're told." - Patrick Lortie

This is really promising for tomorrow! What kind of trade would you see happening, knowing all this?

Would Josh Anderson be enough? If not, would you offer Christian Dvorak + the 26th overall pick?

Would you like to see Kent Hughes acquire the 7th overall pick from the Sens, if it costs a Josh Anderson?
