Steve Yzerman has just made the Canadiens an offer Kent Hughes can't refuse.

As Kent Hughes himself mentioned, he's open to trading his 5th overall pick to move up or down in the draft.

Rest assured, however, that the Tricolore GM won't let his top pick go for breadcrumbs.

According to the "El Cloun" account, Steve Yzerman has made Kent Hughes a particularly impossible offer to refuse.

Don't be fooled by the name of this independent tipster - he's well known in the industry and was the only one to predict the Alex Newhook trade.


Getting back to the offer, here's what's going on behind the scenes.

IN MONTREAL:
- 9th overall pick
- 17th overall
- A promising defenceman like William Wallinder

AT DETROIT :
- 5th overall

If Hughes really refuses to draft Michkov or the remaining top-5 prospect, he might as well back off, and that's where this deal would make sense. Several very good players, including Gabriel Perreault, will be available between ranks 9 and 17.
