Kent Hughes reportedly made a crazy offer for Brock Boeser

Kent Hughes has made a habit of making little jewels of transactions since his arrival as general manager of the Habs. Many still doubted him, saying that he had the right to make a fire sale at the trade deadline, but the trade bringing Kirby Dach to Montreal convinced the doubters.

Speaking of the Dach trade, it would appear that this was not the GM's original plan. According to informant Rick Dhaliwal, Alexander Romanov was offered to another team beforehand.

Dhaliwal claims that Kent Hughes offered the former number 27, a draft pick and a hefty contract to the Canucks to acquire Brock Boeser. The GM in Vancouver reportedly declined.

With this information, it's not surprising to hear all the rumours linking Boeser to Montreal. The Habs want to fill their centre line with good young players and Brock is only 25 years old. However, he is often injured, which lowers his value considerably.
