Major trade proposal between the Habs and Coyotes for the fifth pick

Published May 22, 2023 at 1:57 PM

It's not going that great these days in Arizona. Since the city of Tempe flatly refused to have the Coyotes, it's safe to say the team is homeless; an unpleasant situation for everyone in the organization.

This is the case for star forward Clayton Keller who, without admitting it openly, does not seem to like these circumstances. His father was very vocal on social media about the fact that Clayton was leaving the Coyotes.

Hockey Night in Montreal therefore took advantage of the situation to make a rather major trade proposal, which would bring Keller to Montreal.

The Montreal Canadiens would receive Clayton Keller and the 12th overall pick

The Arizona Coyotes would receive Josh Anderson and the 5th overall pick, plus a second round pick

Again, it all depends on Kent Hughes' plans for the fifth pick. If none of the players still available interest him, why not back off and have the chance to select David Reinbacher or Gabe Perreault with the 12th pick, plus acquire a solid established NHL player?
