In terms of actual market value I am guessing at most a 4th/5th round pick but very unlikely Montoya gets traded(it should be noted he is a UFA this summer) no matter where they stand at the deadline
I think you're significantly undervaluing Al Montoya.

In the past 60 games or so, he's proven himself to be a quite formidable goaltender. Recall his pre-injury form to rid yourself of the last 2months where Nabokov has stolen the headlines.
