Kent Hughes prepares another major transaction

After acquiring Alex Newhook yesterday, the Habs GM could well make another major move today, with his 5th overall pick up for grabs.
Elliotte Friedman reports.
We know that the Detroit Red Wings are very aggressive in the matter and would be willing to trade their 9th and 17th picks, as well as a promising defenseman.
The Capitals, Flyers and Predators are also very interested in this pick, which will certainly raise the stakes.
The chance of drafting a player like Matvei Michkov, for example, is hard to come by. However, if Hughes receives an offer that's impossible to refuse, expect the 5th pick to no longer be for Montreal.
