Montreal have no reason to trade him, they just signed him to a 2-year deal.

If Briere who could be had for a 3rd liner last season (Gratton) is all the Habs can fetch for Koivu, I'd pass big time on any kind of trade involving him (something I'd probably do no matter what anyways). Like it has been said to death, Koivu is more useful to Montreal than any other team in this league.
As a habs fan, I have to admit I would take Pyatt over is close, but Pyatt has more trade value and the habs probably think more higher of him than Hossa at this point. Hossa and a third for Pyatt may work out value wise.

As for Koivu and Briere, Koivu has much more value than way Montreal would trade their heart and soul captain for Briere....Koivu is way more valuable than Briere to any team, especially the habs
