First off, I seriously doubt Detriot will completely dismantle their team like your saying... Maltby, Draper, Schnieder... they are key, key veterans on the Wings' and vital to the team's core and chemestry.
I can maybe see Lidstrom going closer to the trade deadline to a playoff bound team that has some cap space as a rental player if Detriot wants to inject some youth into the team... but I can't really see him getting a too big of a return because of his huge contract and his age.
If I'm the Habs, a playoff bound team with no defenceman (save Markov) that can legitimetly save you games in the playoffs, I would consider dumping one of their younger forwards for a playoff run.
To Detriot: Chris Higgins (an american who I think would thrive in hockeytown with Kris Draper teaching him how to be the NHL's best two way player), Sheldon Sourray (gotta make some cap room)
To MON: Nik Lidstrom
