I meant to tell you.
I wrote a mailbag.
Part 1 went live this morning and focuses on Pierre-Luc Dubois’ future, Mark Chipman’s involvement in franchise decision making, guessing at Rick Bowness’ “hidden message”, and more:https://t.co/qANJ09PnFU

We rarely talk about Pierre-Luc Dubois without mentioning his potential desire to come and play in Montreal. After all, it’s rare to see such a persistent rumor, and that’s what’s so confusing about the whole thing.
Experts and journalists all over the NHL have been saying it openly for months now. Dubois with the Habs is only a matter of time. However, it’s the contractual situation of the main interested party that’s shuffling the cards at the moment.
Why? Because he won’t cost any assets via a trade or hostile bid.
But, no. If Hughes really wants him, he shouldn’t wait, because chances are Dubois will fall in love with his new city if he doesn’t play in Winnipeg next year.
All these points have been made in the past. In a piece by Murat Ates, The Athletic’s reporter covering the Jets, we read that the Jets will have to seriously start thinking about their plan with Dubois… And, should he leave, Ates raised a few potential destinations.
I tend to think that Montreal – said to be his ideal home – and other eastern metropolises like New York are at the top for his long-term services. I suppose Los Angeles fits in with some of the priorities I’ve guessed, even if it would be further from home (speaking of Montreal). – Murat Ates
We’re really getting to know the situation inside out.
The problem? As time goes by, the rumors about him start to intensify. We’ve long been told that all he wants is to play for the Montreal Canadiens.
In fact, it’s been a very long time.
The fact is, Pierre-Luc Dubois won’t be signing a long-term contract with the Jets. It’s not impossible… But it’s like almost impossible.
Remember, too, that if he signs in Winnipeg, the Jets won’t be able to trade him for the space of a year, and they’ll lose him for absolutely nothing next year.
– Happy drafting!
