We know Kent Hughes' asking price for two Canadiens players on the market

BY MARCO    JUNE 22, 2023  (3:42 PM)
We don't have much news about what's going on behind the scenes in hockey, particularly in terms of negotiations and intentions.

Fortunately, we can rely on some well-connected informants to give us relevant information on what's going on.

Note that this doesn't mean that everything they say is happening, but discussions are moving in that direction, and they're rarely wrong.

David Pagnotta is one of them, and he explains the situation of two Canadiens players, Joel Edmundson and Mike Hoffman.


"During the season, the Canadiens were asking a first-round pick for Edmundson, but that price may drop slightly now that he'll only be available to a team for one playoff run before his contract expires.

The Carolina Hurricanes, Edmonton Oilers, Calgary Flames and Seattle Kraken were among the teams reportedly expressing interest in Edmundson prior to the trade deadline, and it's possible that these clubs will come back to inquire in the coming days."

This is the 2nd time we've heard that #68 is being offered for free, from two different informants.

As for Edmundson, his value has certainly diminished, and it would be quite a surprise if Kent Hughes managed to get a 1st-round pick for him.
