According to many analysts, the Canadian did not fall into the good year to have the first option in total. why? Simply because there are no exceptional players. That doesn’t mean there are no good players, just that there are no Conor McDavids or Austin Matthews.
Following this reasoning, some have questioned whether al-Kindi should listen to offers of choice. The problem is that the draft is in Montreal this year and I would be very surprised to see the Habs spit on a chance to be able to pick first in their own runway.
Today, we learn from the mouth of Kent Hughes himself that CH has not yet had discussions with another team regarding a potential exchange including the first option.
I also asked him about the reported trade talks between Montreal and the Devils for Choice #2. Kind of a no-answer, but he said:
“I don’t want to comment on New Jersey out of respect for Tom Fitzgerald. But I will say we haven’t had conversations about trading our pick.”# demons

Kent Hughes also says that for now, even he isn’t convinced who the Canadian would be.
Well…we agree, it’s worth what it’s worth. Could Hughes try to raise it up by saying he didn’t have selection talks? Can. And I’m convinced that if we put him on a fine show, he’ll be ready to listen.
But it will take the moon, quite simply.
Because no matter who the Canadians pick from Juraj Slafkovsky, Shane Wright or Logan Cooley, he will instantly become one of the three most talented players in the organization alongside Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield.
For several years, Montreal was said to be lacking in raw talent and offense. Plus, everyone knows the Canadian isn’t aiming for competition next year. It will take a few more years. Pick first this year and pick the last 5 next year: what more could you ask for?
The Alouettes acquired American running player Walter Fletcher from the Elks for a sixth-round pick in 2023.

– I totally agree.
LRDS // Jack Martin thinks it would be good for the Golden Knights to have a coach like Bruce Cassidy. He also takes the time to comment on the Stanley Cup Final.

For me, DeBoer ending up in Dallas makes the most sense. Communicate with Pavelsky, who is a good coach for an older team. We could see Flyers offer Barry Comcast money to take over there, although I know there’s been speculation around Torts. we will see!
