Three Team Deal, just a thought experiment more than something I could see or want happening. Three Team deals are hard to work out, I see why GMs get paid so much.

2024 1st Round Pick (MTL)
Boston gives up Gryz, Carlo, Lysell, Harrison, Poitras, DiPietro and a 3rd, gets back McTavish, Savard, a 2nd and a 4th.
---Boston gets a 1C for the future and a veteran D to play with Lohrei, and a pair of picks at the cost of 2 young defensemen, 3 good but unproven prospects, and a goalie prospect they don't need--- Grade: B+
Anaheim gives up Gibson and McTavish, a 2nd and a 4th, gets back Dvorak, Carlo, Lysell, Poitras, DiPietro, and the higher or MTLs two first round picks in 2024, unprotected.
-Anaheim gives up their 2C of the future and a goalie who wants out for a 1RD, a 2C, a slew of good prospects, and an unprotected, potentially top 10 pick--- Grade: B
Montreal gives up Dvorak, a 1st, and Savard, gets back Gibson, Gryzelck, Harrison, and a 3rd round pick.
-Montreal gives up a good pick, their 2C, and a veteran D man for a goalie to take over as their starter, a serviceable top 4 D, a prospect and a pick. Grade: A
why tf would the habs give up a 1st for a 30 year old goalie is has been quite garbage the last 3 years
Now come on, he threw in an undersized pending ufa LHD because God knows we are desperate for LHD especially small ones. Oh and a prospect who has almost 0% chance of making the NHL like ever. That has to be enough for us to take on a declining goalie and give up an unprotected 1st, right?!
Montreal's counter offer - Swayman + 2024 and 2025 1sts for Armia and Price's contract
