Offer Sheet to Alexis Lafrenière: Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens have serious chances of success if they dare

As you know, over the past few months, there have been many trade rumors involving Alexis Lafrenière and the Montreal Canadiens.

However, there could be another solution to attempt a big move like the Kirby Dach one and to bring Lafrenière to Montreal to progress him with Martin St. Louis.

A new serious option



As reported notably by Félix Forget, the New York Rangers are currently in serious trouble with the payroll and they are very vulnerable to an offer sheet.


If a team submits an offer sheet for a player like Alexis Lafrenière, it will be very difficult for them to match the offer in time.

Let's not forget that Lafrenière is currently a restricted free agent. He must sign a new contract before the start of the next season.

As of this writing, the Rangers only have $2.3 million in cap space. That's all.

A scenario like Kotkaniemi's?



If a team (like the Montreal Canadiens) decided to submit an offer sheet similar to the one signed by Jesperi Kotkaniemi with the Carolina Hurricanes, a one-year contract worth over $6 million, New York would be in serious trouble.

A team like the Blackhawks could also try their luck.

Would you like Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton to consider this option? Would you do it?
