Inspired by Domi Trade I Saw

Team Explanation
I've been pretty adamant in my opposition to a Max Domi for Josh Anderson swap for a few reasons:
* I believe Anderson is the better player if he's 100%
* Most trades I see with him involve him signing for cheap and I don't see Columbus parting with him for a draft pick or Domi swap if he's signing for <3 a year
* Anderson is my favorite player lol (I already lost my favorite NFL player, Stefon Diggs off my team this year. I really don't wanna lose my favorite NHL player off my team either)

This one however intrigued me because it created quite a but of cap space and moved expendable players on the team.

From CBJ's side:
* Domi fills the 2C need
* Moving Jenner + Nuti creates 6.5 in cap space at only the cost of a 4th liner and a guy who's stuck as the 6/7 D man on this team
* Getting back a 2nd helps with the lack of one this year from the mistake of a Dzingel trade

From Montreal's side:
*Idk, I got the idea from another guy making a Montreal team. I don't hate it for them, but I don’t think it's super helpful (mainly doing this cause I liked the idea for CBJ)

Based the Domi contract off of some of the ones I've seen on here, let me know if it's off.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
I am NOT putting Dubinsky on LTIR because as I currently understand it, he cannot be placed on it until the season begins. As far as I know after doing some research, unless a player was on LTIR the previous season, they must enter the year on the roster/IR with their cap hit counting against the team until the league clears the team to move them to LTIR. Unfortunately, this means Columbus must buyout Wennberg/Not sign any FAs due to that 5.85 being on the books at season's start. I'm not 100% on this rule, but that's how I understand it right now, so I'm accounting for it.

As far as lines, they aren't super thought through, just a reasonable estimate of what I expect with a small mix of what I'd like to see. Bemstrom/Robinson is the only real difficult lineup decision I see (assuming Grigorenko does come over to play)

That would definitely work. He'd either be a 4th liner / scratch or only cost 400k buried. Contract wouldn't give Columbus any issues entering the season and DEFINITELY wouldn't after Dubi is put on LTIR. No issue for Columbus to take the contract if Montreal doesn't want it.

Perfect. And is Jeanner still good in the defensively / in the dot?

Absolutely. He's really just nothing offensively and isn't worth it at 3.75, at least for us.
