We finally have some action on the NHL trade market, and it's very interesting for Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens.

According to what has just been reported by the reputable David Pagnotta, the Minnesota Wild has just placed two big names on the trade market. Here it goes!

Goalie Filip Gustavsson and the young Marco Rossi on the market; targets for Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens

While everyone here is wondering who will be the next Kirby Dach/Alex Newhook for Kent Hughes, well Marco Rossi fits perfectly into this description.

In addition, the Wild needs young defensemen (and there's an excess in Montreal).

«The Minnesota Wild is starting to plan its summer trades and has begun to make known in the NHL that some of its players are available for a trade.

Minnesota is ready to trade goaltender Filip Gustavsson, who still has two years left on his contract for a salary of $3.75 million. [...]

And as Anthony Di Marco from TFP reported on Thursday, the Wild is also listening to offers for young center Marco Rossi.» - The Fourth Period

This is very interesting for the fans of the Canadiens.

Rossi, 22 years old, is a 9th overall pick (1st round) in 2020. After amassing 120 points, including 39 goals in 56 games in the OHL at just 17 years old, he immediately started his professional career.

Last season, he amassed 40 points, including 21 goals in 82 games with the Minnesota Wild. (51 points in 53 games in the AHL) He seems to be ready to blossom and move to the next level, like Kirby Dach was.

As for Gustavsson, he is a young goalie of 25 years old. He was one of the best goalies in the entire NHL last season, after a breathtaking season.

In 39 games, he maintained a record of 22-9-7, a goals-against average per game of 2.10, and a save percentage of 0.932! In his NHL career, we're talking about 2.73 and 0.912. (in 111 games)

Two names to remember in Montreal!

Would you trade Cayden Primeau, Justin Barron, the Jets' 1st pick, and a 2nd round pick, for Filip Gustavsson and Marco Rossi?
