    :habs

    Nikita Scherbak
    Jacob De La Rose
    Xavier Ouellet/Draft pick

    :nucks

    Markus Granlund
    Ben Hutton

    Just spit balling contracts to make it work.

    Looks like value would be there based on what I see Nucks fans showing little value in granlund and Hutton at this point. The Habs take on a bit more salary but fix their forward issue.

    Nucks get a bunch of younger guys who fit in with the youth they are building around in Vancouver.

    Doesn't look like the most interesting trade but it does look feasible as long as Vancouver has roster spots for the players listed

    I don't think this one works for Vancouver. Markus Granlund has been a useful player for Travis Green in a checking PK role.

    And to give that up to just add more youngish fringe NHL wingers to a team with an abundance of youngish fringe NHL wingers already doesn't seem to make sense.

    Moving Hutton I could see. Scherbak is intriguing (what is he looking like at this point? Still top 6 hope or bottom 6?) but its an area we are already loaded at. So those guys are redundant.

    If the Canucks are looking for anything its some help on defense. But we have alot of bottom pair/fringe defenseman too so we'd have to move one out in a deal.

    I don’t see any reason for Montreal to make this trade. Granlund is a dime a dozen middle 6 and Hutton has been regressing steadily since he broke into the league. Montreal has too many wingers but if they’re moving Scherbak it may as well be for a pick. Not redundant players that don’t fix the logjam Montreal has.

    Doesn’t fill either team’s needs.

    Meh. I used to have interest in Hutton but he's a seemingly depreciating asset. Also rather keep DLR over Granlund.

    Granlund has been very solid for us in the bottom six, very good on the PK. I’d still probably do this trade though. Make that pick a 3rd?

    I’d do it and I like Hutton, but our coach seems to have a grudge against him.

    Don't know to much about the Montreal prospects but sure I would do it. Granlund has found a good spot as a 3rd/4th shutdown/pker but Hutton needs to be moved. He's stagnated so much and actually regressed under our coach, if he's going to get his career back on track he needs a fresh start sooner than later.
