While all eyes are on Trevor Zegras and Martin Necas for the Montreal Canadiens, Kaapo Kakko could follow in the footsteps of Alex Newhook.

Last season, as everyone was focusing solely on Pierre-Luc Dubois, Kent Hughes surprised fans by opting for a less costly solution with Alex Newhook.
This season, as everyone focuses only on Trevor Zegras and Martin Necas, could Kent Hughes surprise fans again and opt for a less costly solution with Kaapo Kakko? It's definitely a possibility.
Kakko, 23 years old, 6 feet 2 inches and 205 pounds, was the second overall pick in 2019, drafted by Jeff Gorton.
He was selected the same year as Kirby Dach (3rd) and Alex Newhook (16th). He has accumulated 19 points in 61 games this season and has a total of 117 points in 300 career games in the National Hockey League.
Could Kaapo Kakko interest the Canadiens, knowing that his price would be much lower?

«Kaapo Kakko, selected 2nd overall in 2019 by the Rangers, was left out during the second game of the Eastern Conference Finals. He will be a restricted free agent. If you are the Canadiens, is Kakko a player who interests you?» - BPM Sports

It's indeed an interesting question to ask, especially knowing that Gorton knows him very well.
It's a possibility to keep in mind here.
According to the New York Post, Kakko's days are numbered in the big apple.
