Following the trade previously concluded between the Montreal Canadiens and the Calgary Flames for Sean Monahan, the situation has just changed for Kent Hughes.

As you surely know, in August 2022, Kent Hughes possibly completed one of the most complicated transactions in NHL history by acquiring Sean Monahan and a first-round pick in exchange for future considerations.
This first-round pick came with 10,000 words of conditions (we're barely exaggerating), but a few years later, especially following the trade announced yesterday involving Jacob Markstrom, the picture is finally becoming clearer.

Trade concluded between Montreal and Calgary for Sean Monahan: the situation has changed for the Canadiens and the conditions are becoming clearer

Now that the Flames traded their goaltender Jacob Markstrom to the New Jersey Devils yesterday, it seems they are taking a few steps back in their "reset."
Reminder of the trade announcement:
This trade changes the scenario for the Montreal Canadiens.
Considering their 2025 first-round pick is protected if it's in the top 10, and considering it is now likely to be in the top 10, Kent Hughes would instead receive the Florida Panthers' first-round pick in the end (according to one of the many clauses in the initial trade).
"The return is known, and this increases the chances that the Calgary Flames finish in the bottom 10.

The probabilities that the Montreal Canadiens will have to take the Florida Panthers' pick significantly increase." - Brian Wilde

Obviously, the Panthers' first-round pick is likely to be much later, so this trade announced yesterday between the Calgary Flames and the New Jersey Devils really changes the scenario for our Montreal Canadiens.
A story to follow over the next year.
