Proposed trade between the Canadiens and the Canucks involving the 11th overall pick

BY MARCO    JUNE 4, 2023  (10:30)
Much like the acquisition of Sean Monahan last year, Kent Hughes once again has the chance to make a substantial gain by helping another team free up space under the salary cap.

A trade proposal with the Canucks has just surfaced. It would appear that the GM in Vancouver is inclined to get rid of Tyler Myers, who has one season left at $6 million.

Kent Hughes would then have the opportunity to pick up the Canucks' 11th pick in a deal that makes a lot of sense for both teams.

In Montreal
Tyler Myers
1st round 2023 (11th overall)


In Vancouver
Joel Edmundson (50% of his salary withheld)
1st round 2023 (Panthers pick)

For the Canucks, they would gain around 4.5 million in payroll, which is far from negligible. Plus, the team would have a reliable defenseman and leader in Joel Edmundson. And they'd still have the chance to draft a first-round pick, albeit a later one.

For the Habs, there would be greater depth among right-handed defensemen and, of course, the 11th overall pick, which could become another defenseman by the name of David Reinbacher, for example.
