The Columbus Blue Jackets are running out of time to trade their forward Patrik Laine, and the Montreal Canadiens are worth keeping an eye on.

More and more, observers are questioning whether Laine has trade value, and more and more, the possibility of a new "Sean Monahan-like" transaction is being mentioned.
It should also be noted that, after July 1, Kent Hughes is among the few GMs in the entire NHL to have the necessary cap space to accommodate Patrik Laine's $8.7 million contract.

A trade between the Montreal Canadiens and the Columbus Blue Jackets involving Patrik Laine?

Time is running out for the Jackets in this matter, and the list of teams that can take on his contract is shrinking more and more.
Let's remember that Laine has requested a trade.
«The few teams still interested in his services will absolutely want to talk to Laine before completing a trade for his acquisition.

The Seattle Kraken, the Carolina Hurricanes, and the Montreal Canadiens have been three of the teams most linked to the Finn.

To acquire his services, along with his hefty $8.7 million per year contract for two more seasons, the price should not be very high, despite the fact that he remains a pure sniper full of talent.» - Michaël Petit

It's a situation to follow, in any case, but there is definitely starting to be a sense of urgency.
Patrik Laine, 26 years old, 6 feet 5 inches and 215 pounds, was the second overall pick in 2016. He has accumulated 9 points in 18 games this season, 52 points in 55 games last season, and 56 points in 56 games the previous season.
He has been very productive in the NHL.
We should also obviously remember his first two absolutely phenomenal seasons in the NHL, during which he amassed 36 goals (at 18 years old) and 44 goals (at 19 years old).
