I'm not saying this is the case, but I don't think it's as illogical as you suggest.
I'm not really suggesting it's illogical, only that on the face of the situation there is nothing to suggest that the Habs are looking to bolster their blue line by going after a top pairing player. I completely agree that the situation is fluid and developments inside the Habs camp or others as you suggested might change BG plans (a key injury certainly could).

At the end of the day, It's debatable that the Canadiens even have the assets to procure a top end d-man (without opening a hole in the forward lines).
