The biggest hurdle isn't Montreal but Washington. Washington knows they would have been relocated if it wasn't for Ovechkin. He saved that franchise. He saved that city. Moving him away, there's absolutely nobody who could replace that stardom. The only team who could possibly move a player that would do it is if Pittsburgh swapped him Malkin or something. I could see Winnipeg putting together an awesome package including Evander Kane who'd be great in Washington but even then, Kane can't replace Ovechkin.

However, if Washington got dumb and was willing to risk their franchise and wasn't going to demand Price, Subban, Markov or Galchenyuk? I'd think long and hard at the offer.
