I'd prefer Quick, Crawford and Pavelec. [Pavelec is in all three situations, so he is irrelevant.] Given that all are signed long term, my gut says to go with the two best teams: LA and Chicago.

It seems steep, and I think I'd only consider it if I was sure that JVR was not a keeper. Otherwise, you are giving up two keepers to get an upgrade in goal, and it's not a homerun upgrade.
It's difficult to answer this post (for me anyways) for two reasons:
1) the original post is so long, it gets hard to follow; and
2) I'm not entirely certain how important this trade is to you this year versus the future.
So there is a bit of guess work; tried my best here.
