We all agree that if Pierre-Luc Dubois never arrives in Montreal, he’ll forever be remembered as one of the players most closely linked to the Habs who never donned the club’s uniform.
As far as I’m concerned, it’s unfounded, but okay.
Because it’s going to cost a lot of money, and a lot of people are drawing comparisons with Jonathan Drouin (which is beyond me…), it seems that some people are pessimistic about the situation.
So there you have it. All that to say, it’s polarizing.
I’m one of those who think that having Dubois in Montreal would be a good move. Andrew Paterson, who covers the Jets in Winnipeg, is also of the opinion that the Flanelle would benefit from picking him up.
That’s what he told Tony Marinaro’s Sick Podcast.

That said, while he believes the CH would make a good move since the player wants to play at home, he did say that he hasn’t had all good games in his three seasons in Manitoba.
Under the Winnipeg Jets’ colors, Pierre-Luc Dubois has, according to the journalist (who was asked the question at the drop of a hat), had 20% great games, 50% good games and 30% bad games.
There are two ways of looking at it. According to Marinaro, it won’t be better the day he has a long-term contract and doesn’t have to fight for his money, which will then be guaranteed.
Paterson, on the other hand, believes that if the Quebecker becomes the face (or one of the faces) of the Habs, he’ll have no choice but to give it his all if he doesn’t want his time in town to be a difficult one.
Dubois is known to be inconsistent (we’ve seen it in the playoffs, and it shows when he takes as many penalties as he generates, for example), but on a center line of Nick Suzuki and Kirby Dach, I think he’d fit right in.
If the price is right for Kent Hughes (both the deal and the contract), you’d think he wouldn’t be a pushover, since the situation in Montreal is nothing like Columbus or Winnipeg.
We’ll keep you posted, but let’s just say that under Martin St-Louis and with a good center line, the Quebecer should fight for his playing time.

The hiring process for a new @OlympiquesGAT general manager has begun. Mathieu Curadeau, a 2005-06 player seen here behind Maxime Joyal, is one of the many candidates approached by the team. He is now an agent, notably for Rémi Poirier. pic.twitter.com/5bKatLlr2x
