Kent Hughes Has Refused a Serious Offer for Sean Monahan!

It was announced on BPM Sports yesterday, according to the sources of Maxime Truman, who hosts the lunchtime show with Georges Laraque, the Habs have received a serious offer for Sean Monahan.

The latter says he has no details on the offer itself and on the team that made the offer, but what Truman knows is that Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton would have refused the offer.

So this now means one of two things: either the Habs want to wait and see if they can boost the value of #91 around the trade deadline, or management potentially wants to retain the center's services and eventually work out a contract extension with him.

In my opinion, I think and wish fervently that it is because of the first option and that it means that Hughes simply did not get what he wanted in return for his 28 year old forward.


It's important to remember that many experts believe that Monahan could very possibly bring back a first round pick in return.

Was that what the Habs were offered in their most recent proposal? At this point in the season, I have the impression that a team is taking a chance by trying to low-ball the Tricolore.

If this is the case, the CH management was right to refuse the transaction for their player.

There is no doubt that with the start of the season that Monahan is currently experiencing, the price set by Hughes is quite possibly a first round pick for the 2023 draft specifically.

The club's GM even admitted in an interview that he was very interested in acquiring a third first round pick and Monahan is his most likely lottery ticket in the lineup to receive it.
