Kent Hughes has offered the Jets a big deal for Pierre-Luc Dubois

Published May 25, 2023 at 11:52

Pierre-Luc Dubois has been linked to the Canadiens for over a year now. It's a safe bet that the forward played his last game with the Jets.

We learned in the last few days that the Jets' request for Dubois had been none other than Nick Suzuki last summer. With a smile on his face, Kent Hughes had to hang up the phone.

The requests have now changed, but are no more reasonable. According to Murat Ates, who covers Jets activities for The Athletic, Kevin Cheveldayoff is now reportedly asking for Kirby Dach and a prospect.

Obviously, Hughes won't give Dach either, and the dance continues. Still according to Ates, the Canadiens' GM's offer was still pretty big.

Sure, you have to pay a certain price to acquire a player of Pierre-Luc Dubois's calibre, but you also have to be honest: does the Tricolore really need to sacrifice so much knowing they can get Dubois for free next summer?

The question now is whether Kent Hughes is prepared to pay the price to bring the forward to Montreal a year early.
