The idea of trading a player under contract (AKost) who might well turn into a thirty goal man at least for an impending UFA is just nuts. Throw in SKost and it's double nuts. Unless you believe that the Habs are one player away from a Stanley Cup , all you are doing is giving away talent for a several month rental that will have absolutely no positive effect in the continuing search to build a cup-contending team. Trade him for a high draft pick, a young player, something -- but to trade him in a rebuilding year for a one season rental is a good way to be sure that you will never have a contender.
