Patrik Laine traded to the Canadiens: a major offer has just emerged

Kent Hughes has openly mentioned wanting to add a top-6 forward as early as this summer. What if that forward was the excellent Patrik Laine?

As reported by Marco Normandin, a very interesting offer has just come out, and at that price, we would absolutely do it.

A trade sending Patrik Laine to the Montreal Canadiens is causing a stir



Remember, Kent Hughes has a lot of draft picks and prospects, and unfortunately, he can't keep everyone. (limit of 50 contracts)


What if the Canadiens' GM used his surplus to take a chance on a young player with huge potential?

Patrik Laine's value is currently at its lowest, but let's not forget that we're talking about a young man born in 1998, who is a 2nd overall pick, who is 6 feet 5 inches and 215 pounds.

After scoring nearly 40 goals at the age of 18 in the NHL (64 points including 36 goals in 73 games), Laine was on his way to becoming one of the best players in the world.

Now that he's on a big discount, would it be brilliant for Kent Hughes to give it a shot? Laine has collected 9 points in 18 games this season, and 52 points in 55 games last season!

Yes, 52 points in 55 games last season!

See what journalist Arpon Basu proposes, who believes he could be available at a low price.

COLUMBUS gives: Patrik Laine (2M$ retained)

MONTREAL gives: 2nd round pick 2024 (Avalanche) + Prospect (Emil Heineman)

Wow! I love Emil Heineman and it's absolutely nothing against him, but at that price, it's definitely worth taking the shot.

It's really interesting to see that Basu believes Laine could be obtained at that price.

Anyway, personally, I'd accept right away!

Additionally, the Blue Jackets would retain $2 million on the last two years of his contract.

Remember, Laine scored 36 goals at 18 years old, and 44 goals at just 19 years old in the NHL. That's historic!

And you, would you trade Emil Heineman and a late 2nd round 2024 pick, against Patrik Laine?
