Thought process here is that Desharnais is the odd man out in Mtl's forward mix because of a lack of size and his pending RFA status. Montreal gambles here on NYI finishing below them in the standings and sacrifices CGY's pick for it. Carkner and Reasoner are both solid, veteran players that can help if MTL goes on a playoff run.

NYI get better now and add some draft pick depth. They gamble on Desharnais helping them push into the playoffs and will probably be able to re-sign him at a good rate.
Isles need to add size/ scoring/ physical toughness to their top 6. Not another smallish forward.

No interest in trading the isles first rounder, for little Desharrmais and a lower 1st rounder.
