Could/Should the Habs get Patrick Marleau?

I think he'd be perfect for the team. He's a big centre, he can score and make plays (23G 38A last season), he's got considerable speed (I remember a goal he scored against the Habs last year where he blew by Brisebois [I think] on the outside, cut across the net and burried it...very nice). He's also only 24 years old, so his best days are still to come. I'm not sure what his salary details are at the moment.

Here's the rub: what would it take to get him? I'm thinking a defenseman, forward and a prospect, maybe even a draft pick too. They've got several goalies in SJ, so I don't think Garon or any other netminder need be considered.

What about...
Rivet, Perreault, Ward, 2nd Round
Brisebois, Ribiero, Hossa, 2nd Round

I don't particularly want BG to get rid of any of those guys at the moment, but if Marleau came in return, I think it would be worth it. Any thoughts, or other ideas of how to land him? This is not at all based on a rumour, I simply think he's the type of player the Habs could use, and hey, I can dream, can't I?
