I wouldn't even consider the deal if I was Montreal.

Satan is the best player in the deal, but he's not going to pot much more then 5-8G/yr more then Zednik already is for them IMHO.
Zednik is also a very hard worker, and meshes well in Montreal. Satan's better defensively but he's not exactly a team worker and the last thing the Habs need is to add any dressing room issues.
Add onto the fact that Satan will be an UFA in 1 more year, and the Habs have Zednik locked up for a few more years and I'm dubious it's worthwhile for Montreal even without adding Plekanec into the deal.

Plekanec hasn't done much this season but I still like him as a prospect and he's a reaonably safe bet to become a solid two-way 3rd liner in time.

If I'm Buffalo I jump on this deal in a second, If I'm Montreal then I'd be looking for a hardworking sniper.
