Definitely wouldn't trade AK for a 2nd from a Habs' perspective. Not even Winnipeg's.

But I think you got it right: a rebuilding team should never trade good picks for possibly only one year of improved offense. It took way too many years for Leafs' management to understand that, and their prospect pool has been hurt from it throughout the 2000's.
