An analyst has just revealed an interesting dilemma for Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens involving four young players.

There is much talk about the possibility of acquiring Trevor Zegras via trade, and there is also considerable discussion about the potential of drafting Cayden Lindstrom with the 5th overall pick in 2024. Well, Marc-Olivier Beaudoin has combined these two scenarios.

Trading Kaiden Guhle for Trevor Zegras and drafting the excellent Sam Dickinson instead of Cayden Lindstrom?

According to several sources, Dickinson could possibly hold more value than Guhle, so it comes down to deciding whether you prefer Trevor Zegras or Cayden Lindstrom in the attack.
«If you trade Guhle for Zegras and then draft Dickinson with the 5th pick... it's something to think about!

Zegras + Dickinson or Lindstrom + Guhle? Hard to say!»

- Marc-Olivier Beaudoin

It is indeed a significant dilemma.
On one hand, Guhle and Lindstrom come with more uncertainties regarding their long-term health (Guhle due to concussions and Lindstrom due to his back), but they are two excellent young players who could certainly become elite players eventually.
As for Zegras and Dickinson, the potential might be slightly higher, but Cole Caufield's best friend will need to prove he can become a more complete NHL player (while still producing at a pace of 80-90 points per season).
Sam Dickinson is described as a future top-pairing defenseman, capable of playing over 25 minutes per game.
A case to follow.
