Unfortunately, over the years, expert Norman Flynn has made some trade proposals that haven't necessarily aged well.

We immediately think of this one.
But there's another one that has just resurfaced and already doesn't look very good in hindsight. Yes, another one!

Juraj Slafkovsky traded for Pierre-Luc Dubois? That would have really hurt the Canadiens!

See the post that is becoming viral on the web.
"I wouldn't have any difficulty giving up Slafkovsky for Pierre-Luc Dubois."

On BPM Sports, Norman mentioned that he was ready to do it and would have taken the risk of trading Slafkovsky to get Pierre-Luc Dubois to bring him to Montreal.
He justifies his point by saying that Slafkovsky would probably become a good top-6 player one day, but Dubois already was.
Let's remember and stress that this is an "old take exposed," so it's a statement from Norman that dates back several months already.
Bet that if we asked him the same question today, his answer would be different and he would keep Slafkovsky.
Slafkovsky, 19 years old, has accumulated 16 points, including 5 goals, in 43 games this season. He earns 0.95 million.
Dubois, 25 years old, has accumulated 19 points, including 9 goals, in 40 games this season. He earns 8.5 million per year until 2031.
Let's add that Slaf is on the 1st line in Montreal, while Dubois is on the 3rd line in Los Angeles and is criticized by fans for his lack of effort.
