One has to wonder if the Preds wanted to free up space under their mass for Pierre-Luc Dubois → https://t.co/mtLRXDSeMG

Today is Saint-Jean Day. It’s a time to celebrate our pride in being Quebecers, and to remember that two years ago, Artturi Lehkonen scored one of Montreal’s most important goals in decades.
Ironically, it’s also Pierre-Luc Dubois’ birthday. The Quebecer, who wants to play in Montreal, celebrates his 25th birthday today.
I imagine that, in an ideal world, he’d celebrate by signing a contract guaranteeing him to spend the next few national holidays in the Canadiens’ colors. That said, at the moment, there’s nothing less certain.
Obviously, this doesn’t mean that Kent Hughes won’t be able to pick up the Quebecer. I’d be surprised, in any case, if it happened today… but who knows?
After all, think about it. It’s hard to know what’s really going on with the Habs these days. Why is that? Because all options are on the table to improve the club.
And I’m talking about both the draft and the trade market. Once again this year, we can forget about the free-agent market, where the CH won’t be making any big moves.
That’s good for Kent Hughes. #PokerPlayer
But who? That’s hard to say.
In fact, it could be just about anyone. After all, last year, nobody saw the deal that brought Kirby Dach to town coming. And yet, today, he’s at the heart of the Flanelle’s revival plan.
But it’s not just on the trade market that it’s difficult to determine what the Habs really want to do: it’s also the case on the sidelines of the draft.
We also know that the Habs may consider going lower in the draft. In such a case, the likes of Ryan Leonard, David Reinbacher or Dalibor Dvorsky could be in the club’s sights.
Once again, it’s a possibility.
What’s in it for me? It’s downright impossible to predict what the CH will do. There are too many variables at play right now, and only the draft will provide answers to our questions.
What’s hilarious is that literally no one knows what the Canadiens are doing. There have been legitimate media reports of them:
-Not considering Michkov
-Putting up a smoke screen re: Michkov

It’s also at the draft that the Montreal Canadiens could pull a Kirby Dach rabbit out of their hat, as they did last year. In short, there are so many possibilities right now.

Avs also haven’t closed the door on trying to re-sign pending UFA J.T. Compher but it’s going to have to make sense for them. Compher had a career year this past season https://t.co/C1X30aboG2
