When it comes to goalies, different rules apply in my brain. This is not a Sergei Kostitsyn incident, far from it.
Halak is a good goalie and feels ready to be an NHL starter. He wants to go somewhere where he has a chance. Anyone with half a brain knows that barring catastrophic injury, that will never happen in Montreal.
So, he wants to be moved. Makes sense. He'll never become a starter in Montreal, and risks stunting his career (see Garon, Mathieu) by waiting too long behind a slightly more talented peer.
This is why the NHL should have an expansion draft every couple years
Gives guys like Vukoun a chance.
