Could this work?
Montreal is in need of help on the wings and there is a need for d-men on the Island. How bout a trade based on Subban+ for Niederreiter+? I believe that Montreal needs Subban more than they need El Ni˝o, but if it gets to a point where re-signing him isn't an option, I don't think there's many other teams that could package something Montreal needs like this. Nino's young, got size, has the draft pedigree that wouldn't leave the Montreal fan-base mad. Snow would probably have to add a d-man in return, maybe a Donovan, Ness or maybe even de Haan. Just spit-balling here in lieu of word that Nino wants out...
