Patrik Laine has been struggling once again this season. In 10 games, he only managed to score 4 points, and was even scratched during a recent game.
At $8,7M AAV, it's not good enough.
In the past year, the Montreal Canadiens showed that they aren't afraid to acquire struggling players, to give their career a second wind. That's what they did with Kirby Dach, Alex Newhook, Sean Monahan and its paying dividends.
With Martin St-Louis behind the bench, player development has taken a huge turn in Montreal and they have what it takes to help players achieve their goals.
If someone can get the best out of Laine, it's Martin St-Louis, in Montreal.
However, Kent Hughes would need to pay the right price.
