Trades
MTL
  1. Athanasiou, Andreas [RFA Rights]
  2. Puljujärvi, Jesse [Reserve List]
Additional Details:
It is rumored Oilers aren't willing to commit to AA's 3.8M AAV QO (too high). Lehkonen would bring in similar production-ish at a lower price tag.
EDM
  1. Lehkonen, Artturi
  2. Hudon, Charles [RFA Rights]
  3. 2020 2nd round pick (STL)
Additional Details:
Hudon included for contract swaps purposes. AA is an immediate upgrade on Lehkonen, Puljujarvi is a gamble (may not be worth the 2nd, but should be close.)
MTL
  1. Saad, Brandon ($1,000,000 retained)
  2. 2020 3rd round pick (CHI)
CHI
  1. Byron, Paul
  2. 2020 2nd round pick (CHI)
MTL
  1. Mittelstadt, Casey [RFA Rights]
  2. 2020 1st round pick (BUF)
Additional Details:
Buffalo making a move for a 2C.
BUF
  1. Domi, Max [RFA Rights]
  2. Mete, Victor [RFA Rights]
Additional Details:
A futures move for Montreal. Huge gamble that could result in a huge payoff.

Buffalo already acquired their #2 center, and Domi and Mete won’t get you 8th overall alone, nevermind Mittelstadt too.

If you want AA can come up with a reasonable deal but your thought process towards jp is way tooo far off to even begin a conversation.

That's what I saw go on Twitter. Either way, apparently the Oilers are shopping him to avoid a cap hit they can't afford.

The ramblings have always been Edmonton wants a 2nd rounder for him. Apparently no team has ever stepped to the plate to date for that price tag.

The logic was:

AA is better than Lehkonen, but is pricer and remains under team control for 1 less year. Both guys put up similar-ish numbers (Lehkonen is obviously not as good).

So including a 2nd rounder (GMs seeing it as an overpay) + a wild card in Hudon (AHLer, 13th forward, or could put up 30pts in the NHL again under a different system.) for Puljujarvi on top of cap space seemed close enough.

Byron is a cap dump. Hawks arent interested in him as a return for Saad

These threads should start to peter out now.

Habs fan here.

Although none of your trades are outrageous and totally ridiculous, I would still say that they are ALL tilted a bit too much in Montreal's favour.
I don't see any teams listed accepting those hypothetical trades with the Habs.
