The beauty of multi-player deals is it’s harder to identify the winner. Bourque seems like a bust, but Cammi hasn’t altered Calgary’s fate. We were never going to see Ramo play, but they have him up. Patrick Holland looked like a steal, briefly. Fucale could make it lean in our favour. This team has depth at one position . . . 2nd line centres. If the future down the middle is Eller and Gally (I hope it is). That leaves plekanec and desharnais. If you can keep Plekanec as a two-way centre and Eller and Galchenyuk continue to improve, you have a solid top three centres. So, how do you move Desharnais for value? Package him with the one player with whom he has consistently been able to produce – Pacioretty. I love Pacioretty’s points, but he has always been streaky and despite being one of the bigger forwards, doesn’t use his size to any advantage. My package starts with those two and includes one of Gorges or Emelin (Tinordi couldn’t be much of a down-grade to replace one of them at this point). Add in a draft pick and/or a pipeline prospect (Collberg, Reway, Pateryn, Bennet) What would that bring back? E. Kane and A. Ladd? Shea Weber? Eberle +? Don't know if we're any better with those options, but the point is trade quantity for quality.

Exactly. The second half of the first scenario is the only way the Canadiens are eliminated.
