We have a major last-minute development in the case of Mitch Marner, and it's interesting for the Montreal Canadiens.

Several journalists have indeed suggested that Marner will be traded by the Toronto Maple Leafs this summer, and in the past few minutes, the renowned Frank Seravalli has gone even further.
«Seravalli, who was on SN590 radio this morning, said that the Leafs are simply not interested (under any circumstances) in offering a contract extension to the NHL star forward. (Mitch Marner)

The informant added that if a transaction takes place, there is a strong chance it will happen this week.» - Marc-Olivier Cook, DLC

Wow, let's say this could make this 2024 draft week extremely interesting! He believes Marner could be traded as soon as this week!
«I think the Toronto Maple Leafs will do everything in their power to try to shake things up and try to finalize a trade. [involving Mitch Marner]» - Frank Seravalli

To be continued!
Obviously, we are still talking about a star player, a 100-point player who could leave the Canadiens' division.
Inevitably, it will have an impact on Montreal.

The Mitch Marner trade will have a direct impact on the Montreal Canadiens

And what if Kent Hughes pulled off the improbable?
He has already made two big trades with Brad Treliving, so the two general managers clearly like working together on trades. (two trades concluded while Treliving was GM of the Calgary Flames)
Obviously, it's improbable, but more and more experts are talking about "an out-of-left-field acquisition" for Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens, who are truly looking for an impact forward.
Mitch Marner would absolutely be an out-of-left-field acquisition, simply because Toronto and Montreal are in the same division, but it has already been mentioned a few times over the past two months.
In any case, this will be a huge case to watch in the National Hockey League this week.
Marner, 26, has produced at rates of 101, 101, 110, 100, 93, and 94 points over the past six seasons. That's extremely solid.
