Trade market: two clear targets for Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens

Published November 8, 2022 at 8:50

We told you last week that Pierre LeBrun said that Kent Hughes and his Washington Capitals counterpart had been in talks to complete a deal involving a forward.

The Capitals lost the services of forwards T.J. Oshie and Connor Brown and the team is reportedly looking for reinforcements at forward. However, as reported by Marco Normandin of Habsolumentfan.com, another team in the same situation is the Minnesota Wild.

According to Michael Russo, of The Athletic, Wild GM Bill Guerin would try to make up for the loss of Ryan Hartman via a trade and as we know, Kent Hughes would like to trade some of his team's forwards, like Evgeny Dadonov and Jonathan Drouin.

Both will be free agents next summer and despite their rather rough starts to the season, they could certainly help out a roster with a need on offense.

On the other hand, we still don't know what the return could look like in a trade involving Drouin and Dadonov but for now, let's just say that their value is certainly not very high.

We can only hope that the two Canadiens' forwards will wake up in the next few weeks.

The Habs' possible trade partners seem to be becoming more and more clear!
