Currently, discussions among Montreal Canadiens fans are centered around the fifth overall pick in the first round of the upcoming draft on June 28.

Everyone has their favorite among the available prospects, sparking lively debates. However, the possibility of trading this pick is often overlooked.

Norman Flynn of RDS suggests putting it on the market to acquire an established player.

He believes the reconstruction period should end, and the Canadiens should aim for immediate reinforcement to avoid another season at the bottom of the Atlantic Division.


For Flynn, trading the pick could help the Canadiens compete with teams in or nearing the end of their reconstruction phase, such as the Red Wings, Sabres, and Senators.



However, others, like the author of this article, prefer patience and believe that a high draft pick offers more long-term value than an established player.
