The Canadiens equivalent of what the Islanders gave for Bo Horvat has been revealed

There was a twist on Monday as the Canucks captain was traded to the New York Islanders for Anthony Beauvillier, Aatu Raty and a protected (top 12) first round pick in 2023.

This transaction made Kent Hughes look like a genius, as he had a similar return for Ben Chiarot last year.


Horvat was certainly a coveted player, but his status as an unrestricted free agent at the end of this campaign meant he was losing value, not the other way around.


According to Patrik Bexell of Habs Eyes On The Prize, the Habs would have had to give away Jonathan Drouin, Filip Mesar and the Panthers unprotected first-round pick in 2023 to acquire the star forward.


Imagine the madness if Kent Hughes could have pulled off a deal like that, in addition to signing Horvat long-term.
