Hughes said he was close to trading Petry before the deadline
Marco D’Amico of Montreal Hockey Now: Montreal Canadiens GM Kent Hughes said during the first intermission of their game against the Florida Panthers said that he had a potential deal involving Jeff Petry at the trade deadline that fell through.
“We had conversations with a group of teams. As you know, when you’re working on a Trade Deadline, most of the teams looking to acquire that kind of player are close to the Cap,” said Hughes in regards to the difficult task of moving Petry’s contract mid-season. “Acquiring a contract for multiple years at that number becomes a challenge; it’s probably more likely an offseason move. We did have conversations, and there was one team in particular that we thought might materialize and make sense for both clubs, but in the end, Jeff’s here.”
Petry has three years left at $6.25 million, so an offseason trade is easy for teams fit in. He’ll have interest and they won’t have chase after teams.
