EDM Trades:

- Jack Campbell's turd of a contract.
- 2nd ('24)
- 3rd ('25)

MTL Trades:

- Allen

- Campbell's minor league cap hit and Allen's actual cap hit are an identical 3.85M, and therefore cancel each other out this year and next.

- the 2nd & 3rd are compensation for the Habs having the last two years of Campbell's contract. (It also acknowledges the weakness of the current goalie market giving Allen little value.)

- this gives EDM a credible, veteran, NHL backup who isn't good enough to spook Skinner, but provides a real opportunity to reduce Skinner's playing time before the playoff grind. (Allen has Cup experience as a back-up, and knows what a good back-up needs to do to support the starter.)

- MTL solves their crease and turns it over to the kids. (They can buy out or trade the last 2 years of Campbell if necessary.)

- Contingent on Allen & Campbell waiving their NTC's.

For this I think I would rather give future considerations and snag the first from your previous offer.

Take more than that to get rid of Campbell's contract.

I'd still want a first for taking that contract.

I rather keep Allen and free cap space next year, we don't need picks.

I think Montreal would want more but, I think you’re right and the Oilers taking back Allen might lessen the picks given up. Oil would rather stick with Pickard at 800K considering how well he’s played.
