(2) One pro scout suggests Habs would get an "average" prospect in return to AK, because of inconsistency. The second scout thinks of AK more highly and says a 2nd round pick could be offered.

(3) Not a player you can rely on? The 1st scout says: "Une équipe doit vivre avec ses passages à vide/A team has to live with his slumps" AK is streaky and the team trading for him would need other offensive weapons, since he would not be their scoring go-to-guy. (To be honest, I don't see many "go-to-guys" available at the deadline, and this scout could say the exact same thing about many others)
