Sort of OT, but would Montreal fans be willing to trade Thrower for Lack straight up? They have a lot of depth there(Subban, Gorges, Markov, Beaulieu, Tinordi) and I don't think the Canucks should roll with both an unproven starter and a rookie backup for a season. That way we could make room if a goalie had to be sent our way for a trade(like Theodore from Florida, who would make a lot of sense as a veteran backup), while Montreal solidifies their goaltending depth.
I think the signing of Desjardins indicates Montreal's plan to use stopgaps at present to deal with their lack of goalie depth. We have 4 top 60 picks next draft, I'd expect the plan to be to draft a goalie, or sign a young UFA out of college or from Europe. No real need to trade for Lack, especially if he were to go into a situation where he likely be able to beat out an entrenched starter that is a whole half a year older than him. I doubt he'd want to stay in that situation.
