The Canadian has no plans to trade Evgenii Dadonov this summer


Having made his first difficult transaction since taking office, Kent Hughes meets with the media. And let’s say that unlike Marc Bergevin, he gave a lot of information.

Dadonov in Montreal for a while.

First, the plan is not to exchange Evgenii Dadonov over the summer. The Russian is therefore expected to play for the Canadian next season, unless there is an irresistible offer.

As I wrote earlier, the dream scenario would be to see Dadonov have a good first half of the season and be able to trade him at the next trading deadline. At the limit, the Canadian will even be able to withhold part of his salary. It doesn’t matter, considering that Dadonov is still in the last year of his contract.

Hughes has no plans to trade Anderson, but you never know …

However, Dadonov’s arrival in Montreal (considering he should stay with CH for a while) brings about another problem. The CH has too much money on its wings. Could this transaction then give way to another, involving Josh Anderson?

When asked about it, Hughes replied, as he always does, saying he would never say no to a trade that will improve the Habs. Obviously, he has no plans to trade number 17, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he will stay in Montreal for the remainder of his contract. But Hughes loves Anderson and doesn’t give up.

Logan Mailloux could participate in the development camp

Kent Hughes also confirmed that Logan Mailloux has been in Montreal for several weeks and that he would like the young man to join the development camp this summer.

And if he does well, perhaps he could even attend the recruiting camp, just to familiarize himself with the members of the organization. Honestly, if the Canadian really meant to give him a chance, I wouldn’t see anything wrong with that. Of course the contract can wait, but why not take him to the pitch and see what he has got?

Hughes gets more and more calls for Jeff Petry

Regarding the Jeff Petry. It is obvious that the CH is looking to trade the veteran defender. Hughes even admits to getting more and more calls on this topic.

He says, however, that he won’t give a draft pick in an attempt to get rid of Petry’s contract.

In my opinion, this is a good thing. There is no rush in this case. He’ll never get the moon for Petry, but I’m sure he’ll get something.

Luke Richardson advances to the second round with the Blackhawks

And then finally confirmed the rumor that Luke Richardson had an interview with the Blackhawks. Not only that, but there will also be a second.

However, Hughes also stated that Richardson had no plans to leave the Canadiens unless he became a head coach elsewhere. This is great news for CH, considering Richardson’s experience makes a nice contrast to Martin St-Louis and his flagrant inexperience. Richardson is a great piece in the Canadian’s organizational chart and it would be perfect to keep him for a few more years, but I wish him a chance all over again, which he will never have in Montreal.
