Report Montreal doesnt match Hurricanes Offer Sheet to KK in General Habs Archives Posted September 1, 2021 4 hours ago, campabee82 said: For those willing to let KK gofor such a small return guess who else on Montreal is represented by KK's agents, Nick Suzuki! So guess who else will be signing an OS if MB tries to lowball him too, that's right Nick Suzuki! This one OS has so many ramifications if not matched that it just makes no sense not to match and deal with the cap later. This is apples to oranges. Nick Suzuki has already shown enough to be penciled in at 1C this coming season and could be there for a very long time. If he even comes close to the expectations the Canadiens will open the wallet for him, giving him both good money and term, when the time comes. KK has only been a 3C since he joined the team and has been sheltered for most of that time. He has not proven himself or lived up to the potential everybody sees in him. It makes sense to attempt to sign him to a bridge deal to see if he can achieve that. Either he did not want one or he does indeed not want to play for Montreal any more and this was a way for him to leave.
