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
I'd make that deal even if we had to use our first instead of Calgary's second. Hell, they could have both. That is a coup, an absolute coup.
Just please get Desharnais the hell off our first line. Galchenyuk or Eller ought to take that spot, unless DD has a huge resurgence.
