As a Habs fan the 6th overall is very tempting, and without my bias I lean towards the habs adding slightly, but I think it's something along these lines
33rd OA or Habs third rounder and Nashvilles second
67th overall (ducks third rounder, the fiasco with patrick white and sj bumps everything up a pick after 55)
So Anaheim still gets two early second rounders, Montreal still has the nashville pick at 51, however I think this whole scenario relies on two scenarios. One is both sides feel this deal is best for now and in the future. By making this deal Montreal basically says FU to next season and tanks away, probably finishing bottom five again. As well Anaheim has to assume that they will challenge again for the cup in the next four years.
The second is that both sides disagree with whose available, maybe the ducks love teravainen, take him and say **** it. Maybe the habs see it that way at six and the ducks hate him. It really comes down to this one tbh, I don't pretend to know the ducks needs, but from what I understand they've been all over the place with their drafting. If they don't like a defenseman on the board I think the Habs have Rielly, Reinhart and Dumba high on their list. They trade plekanec draft one of them (let's say Rielly for this exercise). Really deepens the long term D-core for montreal
Subban-Tinordi-Beaulieu-Rielly would be a solid top 4 to work with for years However I really don't see the need to trade down further with the islanders, this move as well may be able to help the ducks attract a solid free agent to help bolster the lineup
If I'm BM and I'm not in love with anyone at 6 I would make either one of those deals. The Ducks need to show Getzlaf and Perry that they are willing to spend and aren't afraid to make deals in order to make the team contenders sooner rather than later. Assuming Teemu comes back, their window of having a solid playoff run could still be open with a few key additions like a Plekanec.
