I assume, a deal involving the Canadiens would look like :

Rick DiPietro + Nino Niederreiter + 15th OV
Thomas Kaberle + Travis Moen + 32nd OV

You send : 8.5M$ (Kaberle) and 7,4M$ (Moen), for a total of : 15.9M$.
Dipietro's money minus 15,9M$ and you talk about 6M$.

While adding a type of prospect that we need (Niederreiter is a powerforward ready to stepup in the NHL), we correct a mistake that we made (moen), have 2 first rounds in a deep draft and free-up space and a roster spot on our salary cap for next year.

Islanders does this, because they save money but also add a full time player on their roster (moen), and move a player that create them problems and asked for a trade last year (niederreiter).

Pacioretty - DD - Niederreiter
Bourque - Plekanec - Gallagher
Galchenyuk - Eller - Prust
1. Most reasonable suggestion so far.
2. As Agnostic said, it's calculated incorrectly.
3. I'm not quite sure Nino would be able to step in and take top line minutes. Would love to have him here though. Good leader and a clutch performer IIRC.
4. Where's Gio?
