The CH had no discussions to trade the first choice


According to several analysts, the Canadian did not fall in the good year to have the first pick overall. How come? Simply because there are no outstanding players. That doesn’t mean there aren’t any good players, just that there’s no Connor McDavids or Auston Matthews.

Following this logic, some have wondered if the Canadian should therefore listen to the offers for the choice. The problem is that the project is in Montreal this year and I would be extremely surprised to see the Habs spit on the opportunity to be able to select first in their amphitheater.

And today we learn from the mouth of Kent Hughes himself that the CH has not yet discussed with another team about a potential trade that includes the first pick.

Kent Hughes also says that for now not even he is convinced who will be the choice of the Canadian.

Well … We agree, it’s worth what it’s worth. Could Hughes just try to up the ante by saying he didn’t have choice interviews? Perhaps. And I am convinced that if we make him an incredible offer, he will be ready to listen.

But it will take the moon, simply.

As anyone from Juraj Slafkovsky, Shane Wright or Logan Cooley the Canadiens will select in July, they will instantly become one of the organization’s three most talented players alongside Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield.

For several years, it has been said that Montreal lacks raw talent and attack. Plus, everyone knows the Canadian is not aiming to be competitive next year. It will take a few more years. First choice this year and another top 5 choice next year: what more could you ask for?
