PK is having an okay year. Not as bad as some would have you believe. But to believe that his year is a plus because he will come out of it improved totally ignores the possibility that he will never become quite the superstar we once thought.

PK alone will never fetch Huberdeau. If it were only the case, I would pull that trade in a second.

The absence of PK and Plekanec will surely cause the Habs to plummet in the standings this year...and maybe next. This will likely assure the team of a lottery pick and a chance at one of the plum prospects this June.

It's a big step back now for sure and a gamble--but the team could be much different and much stronger by the 2013.
