Because Andrei Kostitsyn was one of the locomotives of the 07-08 season and is about as key to the Habs' youth movement as you can get.

If you decide AKost isn't good enough, then it puts the entire off-season into question -- if you don't have good youth, then you don't bother with UFAs, you need to rebuild instead.

Unless AKost is traded for a similarly young offensive forward (and Frolov is UFA next year), I think trading him throws the whole long-term plan of the franchise into question.
