Depending on the return, it could be in play, but I'd rather see some existing Habs prospects be used as bait. I see this year's 1st round as fairly deep. Not as spectacular as recent drafts at the very top, but a mid round pick could get us (for example) McNeill or Huberdeau. Another possible reason for keeping the 1st pick is the Habs' lack of a 2nd round pick.

We have a lot of players to make decisions on before next season. Maxwell, Desharnais and White will all be waiver eligible. I'm not sure the big team will have room for any of them. Not to mention Pacioretty and Weber, who I assume are already in the team's plans. If a rebuilding team falls in love with any of those first three forward prospects, that would be an ideal situation for a trade, IMO.
