Concrete Trade Proposal Emerges for Trevor Zegras: the Cost Will Be Significant

Published February 21, 2024 at 9:17 PM

In recent weeks, Anaheim Ducks star forward Trevor Zegras has been repeatedly linked to the Montreal Canadiens. However, this rumor seemed primarily based on fan speculation rather than information from reliable sources.

However, a significant development occurred last night. Journalist Pierre LeBrun, known for being one of the most connected individuals in the NHL, mentioned that four or five teams had officially contacted Pat Verbeek to inquire about the availability and the asking price for acquiring him.

Moreover, he went further by adding that the General Manager of the Canadiens, Kent Hughes, was indeed among those who contacted the Californian organization. It is now confirmed that the Habs are interested in acquiring the 22-year-old forward.

"And I can tell you that, among the 4-5 teams that called the Ducks for a trade involving Trevor Zegras, there are the Montreal Canadiens." - Pierre LeBrun

Wow! This information is likely to please many Montreal fans!

Knowing that the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge has shown interest in the 9th overall pick of 2019, Marc-Olivier Beaudoin suggested a concrete offer that could be very interesting for both teams. Indeed, if the Canadiens pick between the 7th and 9th spot, he wonders if Kent Hughes could offer his first-round pick to add Trevor Zegras to the Montreal lineup.

"Would you trade the CH's 1st round pick for Trevor Zegras?

Considering the lottery is behind us and the pick is in the "range" 7 to 9." - Marc-Olivier Beaudoin

As you can see from the poll responses, fans are really divided on the issue. Indeed, 57% of internet users would not make such a transaction, even if it would allow Martin St-Louis to have a prime option for his top two lines.

And you, would you make this transaction if you were in Kent Hughes' shoes?
