It's too late to buy Audette's contract, impossible to trade him, a waste of time to make him play, even a waste of time to send him down to Hamilton. Look at the situation one way or another, Gainey have to trade Claudette to a similar overpaid done player. Savage is fitting into that category. Take it or leave it.
This is exacly right. No team is ever ever ever going to pick up Audettte's contract even in the unlikely event that he pots a few before the trading deadline. And even then, the Habs would have to pick up all but a few hundred thou/year of his contract.

The question is: how many years are left on his contract? And for Savage?

If it's the same, or Audette's is longer, I say bring on Brian. If Savage has a longer term...well, forget it.
