Deal Incoming Between Montreal and Toronto?

Last year, the Montreal Canadiens made a savvy move by giving "future considerations" to acquire Sean Monahan from the Flames, who proved to be a valuable addition to the team.
It was a brilliant move by Kent Hughes, who also got a first-round pick out of the deal.
Now, a year later, there are whispers that the Toronto Maple Leafs might be involved in a similar trade scenario with Montreal.
The Leafs' main concern this off-season is their goaltending, and rumors are swirling that they're eyeing Carter Hart as a potential target. This speculation has led to suggestions that the Leafs may trade their veteran goalie, Matt Murray.
Now, interestingly, the Montreal Canadiens could play a part in this scenario. They still have some room in their salary cap, which means they could be willing to trade their cap space for promising young players. This has fueled rumors of a potential trade that could benefit both teams.

So, what might this trade look like? According to some sources, the possible deal could shape up like this:
Toronto gives:

Matt Murray
Their 1st-round pick in 2024

Montreal gives:

Future considerations

A Strategic Move

Considering the financial situations of both teams, there's a chance the Philadelphia Flyers might also get involved to help facilitate Carter Hart's move to Toronto. This would add another layer of complexity to the trade discussions.
The Canadiens' previous experience with the Sean Monahan trade worked out in their favor, as they gained a valuable first-round pick from the Flames. Since Montreal may not be seen as top contenders in the upcoming season, focusing on trades to secure future assets could be a wise strategy for them.
Let's not forget that Brad Treliving was the Flames' GM at the time, and he's done a lot of business with Kent Hughes in the past.
Now, whether Matt Murray will indeed end up in Montreal is still uncertain, but it's an exciting rumor to keep an eye on as the off-season progresses.
