Picture of Juraj Slafkovsky and Alexis Lafreniere. Will the players swap teams?
The latest NHL trade rumors for the New York Rangers feature the team trading Alexis Lafreniere for Canadiens Juraj Slafkovsky.

Alexis Lafreniere was the subject of NHL trade rumors throughout the offseason, but he ultimately signed a two-year, $4.65 million contract extension with the New York Rangers.

Speculation online suggests it may be time for the Rangers to move on from Lafreniere after his continued struggles in the preseason, with the Montreal Canadiens being a possible landing spot.

Will Alexis Lafreniere be traded to the Montreal Canadiens?

Alexis Lafreniere would benefit from a change of team, and the Montreal Canadiens appear to be the best option for a trade.

Stefan Rosner of The Hockey News believes Laff will be traded sooner rather than later, and the Habs are the perfect landing spot for him.

According to Rosner’s online article, it is highly likely that Lafreniere can still yield an excellent return if a trade is to be made.

NHL trade rumors have the following proposed trade involving Alexis Lafreniere and Juraj Slafkovsky.

New York Rangers trade:
Alexis Lafreniere,21, with two years remaining at a $2.325 million cap hit

Montreal Canadiens trade:
Juraj Slafkovsky, 19, two years at a $950K cap hit with $3.5 million in performance bonuses.

What are NHL fans saying about a potential Alexis Lafreniere for Juraj Slafkovsky trade in the works?

Trade an aging Panarin and give Laff first line minutes and see what happens.

I think Juraj Slafkovsky is worse than Lafreniere. I say pass on this trade.

Please, please, please trade Lafreniere to my Habs. Watch what he will do!
