See part of his explanation:
No need to tell you that this is a controversial trade proposal that has generated a lot of reaction.
In my opinion, this deal would be completely illogical for the Habs to make. From a simple administrative standpoint, Slafkovsky is nearly three years younger than Lafreniere and is in the first year of his NHL entry-level contract, which means he won't cost the organization much for at least two more seasons.
As for the Quebecer, his contract ends this summer. He will have to negotiate a new contract that should cost the New York Rangers several millions per season.
Remember that this is not the first time that Flynn has proposed a controversial trade involving a young player in the organization. In the past, the analyst also took a position on trades involving Cole Caufield and Nick Suzuki, before their emergence.
Needless to say, the trades he proposed would have been a disaster for the franchise.
Just for fun, let's throw out his question: would you make the Slafkovsky for Lafreniere trade, if you were the Habs GM?
