Nothing to slow down the rumors bringing Dubois to Montreal → https://t.co/Rkwu6zCUc7

But now that we know the main interested party is open to signing a long-term contract somewhere other than Montreal, it gives negotiating power to the Jets’ GM.
Remember that the Kings are the most talked-about team. The California outfit is clearly willing to give a lot to get their hands on the Jets’ player.
All this to say that there will be teams. And the Boston Bruins, a team listed by Yvon Pedneault (Journal de Montréal) as one of the clubs to keep an eye on, must be added to the list.
Boston doesn’t exactly have a surplus of space under the salary cap, and salary would certainly have to be freed up.
But that’s just as well, because in the same article by Yvon Pedneault, there’s a list of players who could change address. It includes Anthony Beauvillier, Jeff Petry, Mike Hoffman… and Taylor Hall, who is “a mistake” for the Bruins.
I don’t see Hall being traded to Winnipeg for Dubois because the Bruins player can refuse to be traded to a few teams. Winnipeg will surely be on his list.
But the Bruins’ GM can make a move in two stages, can’t he? First, he could try to send Hall elsewhere, and then take Dubois if he so desires.
I don’t know to what extent Dubois is likely to play in Boston, but let’s face it: if the Quebecer were to play (and succeed) in Boston after being so closely linked to the CH, CH fans wouldn’t get over it quickly.
