This.

The top 5 this year is miles ahead of any top 5 in a long time. A player like Jones looks to be better than Subban, so the only reason to ever consider trading a player like Jones is to bring in more certainty and less development time in an already established superstar like Subban.

You won't be getting into the top 5 with a quantity for quality trade.

The only assets Montreal has that will entice a lottery pick team to give up their pick are: Subban and Galchenyuk. The potential of these top 5 picks is just too great.

That Price guy isn't too bad, either.

The Islanders then traded

Don't see it happening.

Price is already on his payday contract. So whoever made that trade would lose the ELC advantage. Price's numbers are also very average. I cannot see a single team in the bottom 5 looking to acquire Price as the key piece of their rebuild.

The likely bottom 4 so far are Buffalo, Calgary, Florida, and Colorado. Which of those teams wants Price at the expense of a top 5 pick?

Like I said before Subban and Galchenyuk. No other asset gets the conversation started.
