Brian Gianta (another $5/6 m player) has shown very little this season. He is the Captain and moving him would definitely be an eye-raiser.
Montreal would love to move any or all of these guys. Forwards with some value to the Blue Jackets with whom Montreal might part would be Andrei Kostitsyn and David Desharnais (a pint-sized former Cincinnati Cyclone).
The Canadiens are not going to move Subban-he's their future potential defensive gem. However, they'd love to give you Kaberle (softee making $4m with 2yrs left) or Campoli or Gill.
Any movement between the two teams will probably be nothing more than "If you take my problems, then I'll take yours". However, given how poorly both of these teams have performed this season, it's possible that a real blockbuster involving "untouchables" could occur. Both GMs are in desperation modes to hold on to their jobs, so a possible trade could go far beyond a simple garbage out/garbage in transaction.
One Jacket who would likely be part of any major deal would be the "Wiz". His run with Montreal wasn't all that bad and the fans seem to idealize his tenure there.
Remember that the Jackets have no cap room when looking at all of those players you would like to dump off.
