Another trade proposal has surfaced for Pierre-Luc Dubois and the price is still high

Pierre-Luc Dubois is currently the talk of the town.

Knowing this, Jean-Charles Lajoie drew comparisons.


And we'd be talking about the Panthers first round pick, who could be in the top 15 in the 2023 draft and a defensive prospect. Still according to Lajoie, we could be talking about Jayden Struble or Adam Engstrom. So it wouldn't necessarily be an established guy like Jordan Harris or Arber Xhekaj, although the Jets might want them.


Then we might have to add something else. We're talking about a 2nd round pick next year or a prospect on offense.

Okay, if we summarize, the trade could look like this:

Proposal 1

Montreal receives: Pierre-Luc Dubois

Winnipeg receives: Panthers' pick Jayden Struble and Riley Kidney

Proposal 2

Montreal receives: Pierre-Luc Dubois

Winnipeg receives: Panthers' pick Adam Engstrom and Oliver Kapanen

Now, the CH would probably have to make another trade to balance the salary cap. The Habs also already have a lot of NHL-caliber forwards right now, so it wouldn't really make sense to add one without taking another.

But it doesn't have to be in the same deal. The CH could send one of their forwards elsewhere and the problem would be solved.

But would that be the kind of deal you'd be willing to make? Or would you rather wait until the summer of 2024, knowing full well that there is a real risk that he will never arrive in Montreal?
