Marleau is a very good player and re-established his value very nicely this past season. But asset-wise, he's only a 1-year asset to any prospective new team, and thus there is no way the Habs should give up anything of worth to acquire him.

Kostitsyn alone has greater asset value to the Habs than Marleau would, even if he's a significantly inferior player at this point. The Habs don't have the depth and aren't good enough yet to make one of those home-run swing all-or-nothing kind of deals for a short-term return.
