During the very first meeting of the general managers of the season, the GM of the Montreal Canadiens took the opportunity to answer questions from the media and he addressed several interesting files.

Notably, the trade market.

Will the CH be buyers or sellers this season?

See the GM's response.


«You have to wait,» says Kent Hughes, questioned about his intentions on the trade market. «Look at the Oilers, most experts said they were probably the team in Canada with the best chance of winning the Stanley Cup this season and their start is not easy. So, there are 35-40 games left before the trade deadline, we'll see where we are in the standings.» - Via TVA Sports

So there you go. He will be patient and he is clearly open to all possibilities, depending on the performance of the club.

That answers the question, but let's also remember, of course, that Hughes mentioned that he will always be open to making trades for the long-term benefit of the club.

The players, especially the young ones under team control for a while, will therefore always be fields of interest for Hughes.
