Another Pier-Luc Dubois trade to MTL :

Jets : PLD (would probably need to include a handshake agreement for an extension at the season start)
MTL : 2023 1st rounder (Florida's pick), 2023 4th rounder, Owen Beck, Christian Dvorak

MTL gets a solid top 6 center with top line potential who could sign a team friendly deal assuming he really wants to play at home, as reported.

WPG gets a 1st in a deep draft, a solid two way center prospect in Beck, a 3rd line center in Dvorak with a cap controlled contract and an additional 4th rounder. WPG can now then sign one of the many 2nd line centers available in free agency so that they stay competitive next year instead of losing PLD for nothing next year (assuming they would have made the playoffs)

Friedman said on his podcast that Jets and Habs have talked about Dubois and that he's 95% sure that Dubois ends up in MTL. I don't really see how the habs can trade for him especially if he can sign as a FA next year, but Friedman mentions that talks are ongoing.

Any suggestions for a trade?

No hurry for the HABS. Gallagher contract MUST be moved! HABS have many picks now maybe move some of the lesser stars however no $ retained or at least no longer than 1 year if that is possible .,

Colorado : Alex Newhook, Matthew Stienburg
Montreal : Dvorak

Montreal gets a young talented forward to bolster their young core who's also a former first round pick. His developmental curve

With more than 6.8M in deadline cap space, Colorado gets a shutdown 3rd line center who's really good on faceoffs, eats a lot of PK minutes and has offensive upside. They also get a 4th rounder to replace the one they traded away for MacDermid. This deal would solidify their center position for years to come.

I see this deal as a similar one to the Lehkonen trade where they traded Barron and a 2nd for him. Dvorak is on a similar deal as Lehkonen currently, he will probably benefit with being on a more offensive-minded team than Montreal. Newhook's value is a bit higher than Barron's value and Stienburg's value is a bit lower than a 2nd, so both players equal a similar value as the Lehkonen return for MTL.

BUF : Devon Levi
MTL : Christian Dvorak

Interesting if HABS could pull it off. Levi would bolt to top spot in prospects!

Levi isn’t a serious prospect to BUF or anywhere else. Easy no.

VGK - Chayka, cond 3rd round pick (turns to 2024 2nd if VGK makes the playoffs)
MTL - Jake Allen

No trade involving Jake Allen at this time as he is the HABS best goaltender at the moment!

I would say price is out until the trade deadline. So Allen isn’t going anywhere. Picking up Sean Monaghan was an amazing trade. I would say they are under estimating the team Montreal has. That trade shows they are rebuilding but yet showing Montreal is making a slight leap to push for a bottom playoff spot. The trades they have been making are priceless. If they had just one more depth defenseman the team they have could make the playoffs. It’s sounds ridiculous but last year they were plagued by injuries. A terrible coach, and the general manager did some terrible moves to try and compete again. Then again he allowed danualt to walk, knowing he would be following him in Los Angeles. I would say if price is back around deadline Allen is being traded either for picks or a piece that would fill a hole that is needed if they are in playoff contention and price is back. Price is only being put on the ltir so they have extra salary. Tampa did it with kucherov. I would say they aren't going to do much more with this team at the moment. The only trade I could see is Montreal trading Dvorak for a defensman. Like I would like to see Samuel girard in a Montreal uniform. They have the coach, probably one of the most liked coaches in the league by the players. He will probably turn Monaghan’s game Around as he did Caufield.

Might I add, a coaches relationship with the players is very important, a kid coming into the nhl, I believe from experience is almost like having a Second father or a role model to look up to, you trust in them for advice and guidance to make you better, give you confidence, a lot of super stars, are superstars because of the coaching they got from the beginning to the end. If Montreal hadn’t of fired that meat head of a coach they hired, cole caulfields game may never have turned around, and his career may have ended up in the minors. Darrell sutter is a good coach, but he’s a terrible coach on players, I would say Sean Monaghan’s game changed because of sutter. A coach can’t use favouritism over there players, I bet at Louis bring Monahan back to where he was 3 or 4 years ago, he’s only 27 years old. Bet Vinny works with dach and gives him the advice of what he did wrong with his career, instead of what he did right.

Oh and at the deadline if in a playoff spot trading for a veteran presence, preferably that plays centre, I mean it would bump evans out of the line up, but the centre position quarterbacks the team. Amd a veteran presence is for the players to look up to guide them with there past experience. This sounds absurd but if they could fit johnathan toews in, there could be a Cinderella team in the making, St. Louis did it, so anything is possible.
