Montreal trades:
Ben Chiarot @3.5 mil UFA 2022

Calgary trades:
Nikita Zadorov @3.75 mil UFA 2022
2022 third round pick

The contracts are comparable Chiarot makes 3.5 mil and Zadorov 3.75 mil. Both players become UFAs after this season is over.

Calgary gets an upgrade on defense (nastier too) while Montreal gets an extra draft pick.


Montreal trades:
Ben Chiarot 3.5 mil
2nd round pick

Calgary trades:
Nikita Zadorov 3.75 mil
Dillon Dube @2.3 mil RFA in 2024

The difference is Calgary gets a decent pick for next year while Montreal gets a decent young LW who could use a change of scenery, is signed for 2 more years after this one and RFA then.

Why not trade him for a 1st instead of taking garbage from another team.

The concensus is Chiarot = 1st. Why would MTL trade him for a 3rd and a UFA? These make absolutely zero sense.
