At present, Kent Hughes has just under 10 million dollars on the Canadiene payroll.

That's a rare commodity in the NHL, where many teams are struggling to stay within the salary cap, and some are actually exceeding it.
The Rangers have acquired several depth players, but they still have K'Andre Miller and Alexis Lafrenière to sign. According to Elliotte Friedman, many league executives were hoping that Kent Hughes would make an offer sheet for Miller, but that didn't happen.
" Friedman on 32TP: ''There were people who told me they really wanted to see the MTL Canadiens make an offer sheet to K'Andre Miller, just for pure drama, obviously that didn't happen. It will have to be a bridge contract with Miller, let's obviously assume it will be a bridge contract with Lafrenière''"

From what we understand, the other executives simply wanted to see the Rangers have trouble signing Miller, without expecting him to end up in Montreal.
Jeff Gorton and Nick Bobrov being former Rangers, it would have created a lot of controversy, something the CH administration is keen not to do.
