    I'm pretty sure Winnipeg would just keep Appleton and the pick.

    I'm more pessimistic but I feel like a cup run isn't in the cards for this mtl core with the two big contracts declining and a rebuild or clever retool is needed

    Pinto, Shane [Reserve List]
    2023 1st round pick (OTT)
    OTT
    Toffoli, Tyler
    Harris, Jordan

    Toffoli is a solid 2nd line RW, but he's 28, not old of course, but much older than Ottawa's future core, and two years older than their placeholders, Chris Tierney & Connor Brown. Yes he's younger than Dadonov and Stepan, but they are temporary core pieces. Toffoli is inconsistent, but a lot of scorers are, he's just really hot and cold.

    Harris looks like a nice find for Montreal, but would never be more than a 3rd pairing in Ottawa as long as Chabot and Sanderson are there.

    Pinto is probably going to be a 3rd line centre, but that 1st round pick is going to be the best player in this deal.

    1st > Toffoli
    Pinto > Harris

    Ottawa would decline this offer.

    THIS is worded far too nicely. It's a brutal offer for Ottawa. To add to ALL THE REASONS above, Toffoli would be 30 at the time of the trade and just two seasons from being UFA, which means OTT would likely only have him for one full season and need to move him at the deadline of his second season or get nothing in return. This is a very, very easy NO.
