Trade for Sean Monahan: we just learned what the Montreal Canadiens would receive in return
Published November 16, 2023 at 10h40
Apart from the issue of the three goalies, one of the topics that is currently causing the most buzz for the Canadiens is the future of Sean Monahan.
Will Kent Hughes trade him because his contract ends next summer? Will he be re-signed? That's the question.
Monahan is very solid this season for the Habs, and he is possibly the best player on the club currently in the short term. (or one of the best anyway)
He has 13 points in 16 games, in addition to playing everywhere, being complete, being a superb example for the young players and a good leader in the locker room.
Having signed a one-year contract for $1.985M last summer, some believe that a trade might be wise in Monahan's case to maximize the assets of the rebuilding team.
But what about his trade value?
The excellent Arpon Basu, from The Athletic, just suggested the possibility that Kent Hughes and the Canadiens could get nothing less than a 1st round pick in exchange for Sean Monahan. Wow.
In any case, General Manager Kent Hughes will have to make a crucial decision before the trade deadline.
For a 1st round pick, would you do it?
