In all seriousness, I wonder if the teams would be up to the following...

To MON:
Rolston, Bailey, Wishart

To NYI:
Gomez, Eller, Weber

Whereas I believe the Isles would be getting the slighhhhhtly better end of things from an on-ice player standpoint, getting rid of that Gomez contract may just get it done from Montreal's viewpoint. In addition, Montreal may feel Bailey ultimately has more upside than Eller (a feeling I share). On the other hand, it'd be fairly interesting project from a locker room standpoint if the Isles were to add players who not only should be able to help immediately, but also add more Danish and Swiss components to the team.

I make this suggestion feeling Gomez has truly about the worst contract in hockey. Still, I somehow think the guy has a certain skill element that is missing here and could be made use of. He's also VERY familiar with the area.
