Segment 2: BIG Topic - The Forwards: Suzuki, Caufield & ?

The off-season will be a busy one for Jeff Gorton and Kent Hughes. Introducing a new, elite level forward prospect will be the first order of business. Identifying a winger for the Canadiens top line of Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield will be another. And continuing to provide opportunities for young players to advance while supporting them with experience will be a priority.

Will Hughes make a splash at the Draft by making a blockbuster trade for the Devils' second pick overall?
