How about it's a good deal for both teams.
Sure we gave up Halak, but we still have a number #1 in Price. Halak had a good run but nothing guaranteed that he would remain as dominating.
From the Habs perspective:
1. The maximize their assets. No use having two good players for one position. Also, being the first to make a deal with a goalie in an environment with many goalies available in UFA is very astute. Wait until after July 1st and there would be no deal until next trade deadline.
2. Lars Eller is a blue chip prospect with size that will play at the very least on the third line next year.
3. Schultz fills a need we do not have in our organization and can be a Lucic type player. Similar stats in Junior, same type of game.
4. Very cap friendly deal
