Prove me wrong.
I expect Peckham will have an NHL career of some description, and I would not write off Brule either. JFJ seems ... well, it doesn't seem likely that he's going to do much more than what he does right now. And of course, Penner needs little introduction.

By contrast, the Habs side of this proposal has 3 guys-- SK, Halak, and Gorges-- who have already established some NHL credentials and don't get paid $4.25 million a year.

An overpaid slob and 3 complete question marks for 3 guys who have already established themselves in the NHL to some degree.
