A huge report has surfaced that is linking the Montreal Canadiens to acquiring Columbus Blue Jackets forward Patrik Laine.

There has been major interest by multiple teams in the services of Patrik Laine. Up until recently, the Carolina Hurricanes were linked to trading for Laine, however that quickly died down following the NHL draft in June.
While some think that a Martin Necas for Patrick Laine trade with added assets might be the play here, do we think that the Hurricanes can get Laine without giving them Necas?

Now, it's the Montreal Canadiens' turn to have a heavy interest in Laine's services. It seems as though GM Kent Hughes of the Canadiens is hammering out some numbers and some sources around the league believe both teams are one barrier away from striking a deal that would be absolutely Earth shattering, in a good way, for both teams.
A healthy Laine would definitely boost our top 6 and would help the team take a leap forward in 2024-25. I wonder if that's what Kent Hughes is working on right now.

The Canadiens were in heavy need of offense last season, and Laine has not been able to flourish on a bottom-feeding Columbus team. This potential trade that is brewing could possibly have both of these issues solved.
