    Default Habs trade Al Montoya to Oilers for draft pick

    If Montoya plays seven more games in the regular season, it's a fourth rounder.

    If he doesn't, it's a fifth.

    They're really going to go with Niemi as backup?

    It's official, Bergevin has lost it or is deliverable trying to tank.

    Montoya has more value than Niemi. Good move.

    For sure he does but this is a signal he's giving up on the season.

    He most likely did but trading Montoya is no indication of it. Not at all!

    Well he's actively shopping Max, that's another good sign.

    Why wouldn't he give up on the season? They have a 2% chance of making the playoffs.

    Anyone else surprised he’s worth a 4th?

    Of course it is. If Price goes down you now have Niemi playing instead of Montoya. Big downgrade.

    Not really. Proven backup. Higher than a fourth though? That'd surprise me.

    But you got Charlie. You must admit it’s a no brainer unless you also trade Charlie.

    He’s got to play 1 in 6 - seems doable.

    I'm not lamenting the trade at all. Glad he got a fifth at worst. I'm just saying it's apparent he's looking to go into sell mode.

    My point is he traded the asset with greater value considering he has recourse in the minors. It’s a small gesture but a departure from our asswipe GMs usual approach, normally he’d end up with Niemi back on waivers and lose him for zilch.

    Niemi won a Cup. Montoya is a career backup. I don't see any discernible downgrade here. Besides, even with Price we're 28th overall. If he goes down it won't matter who replaces him.
