Absolutely awful trade proposal involving Samuel Montembeault and Sean Monahan

It is known that the Oilers have been scouting the Canadiens for some time, sending scouts to the team's games. They are in real need of a goaltender who can get the job done.

With four consecutive victories, it seems like the storm has passed in Edmonton, but Ken Holland still needs to improve the defense to make the playoffs and go far. This primarily involves securing a decent goaltender.

A journalist from the Oilers has proposed a trade with the Canadiens, and it's frankly awful, even insulting. According to him, Samuel Montembeault and Sean Monahan in exchange for Ryan McLeod and Jack Campbell is a good starting point.

Both Monahan and Montembeault have had a good start to the season, while the opposite is true for the Oilers' players, to the extent that Campbell was placed on waivers. He is also significantly overpaid.


According to several observers, Monahan and Montembeault could each fetch a first-round pick for the Canadiens. This proposed trade seems far from fair.
