Erik Cole
Sebastian Collberg
Montreal 2nd
Dalton Thrower
Ray Emery

Roberto Luongo
Patrick Kane
Eddie Lack

Carey Price
Mason Raymond

Why each team does it:

Vancouver gets a solid veteran winger who will likely have one or two good seasons left to help compete now, as well as getting some good futures(including a BC boy) to help bolster the team in the long run. Eddie Lack is a stud, but he's only two years younger than Schneider. Emery would make a nice backup until Cannata is ready for his chance, and in all likelihood we won't need a replacement for about 10 years, and we'll have plenty of opportunities to draft someone between now and then.

Montreal gets a FRENCH(sort of) goalie, and increases their depth in net(right now I believe they don't have much in net beyond Price). Eddie Lack is a top goaltending prospect, and could very likely take up Luongo's mantle in a couple of years when he retires(and the cap goes back to Vancouver, presumably). More importantly, they get an elite young winger to strengthen their forward group.

Chicago trades an offensively elite but defensively lacklustre winger for an elite goaltender, who would make all the difference to allow the defense to focus more on contributing on offense with the security of an elite goaltender in net to fall back on. They also get a decent winger who could help make up for some of the missing offense and who is also good defensively.

In summation, the way I see the value is:

Price = Kane
Raymond = Emery
Collberg = Lack
Luongo = Cole, 2nd, Thrower
