In a league where parity makes it harder for teams to be eliminated come trade deadline, if Habs are in that position, I can tell you that AK WILL be interesting. might not be THAT interesting only if the asking price is too much.

As far as keeping him, why not. No problem with that. Question is: "Are you interesting in paying 4 M$ for a guy who will end up on your 3rd line." If the answer is yes based on the fact that it means we're solid all over and prooves our depth, so I say yes. But if not, 4 M$ for a 3rd liner is a bit excessive. But for lack of better, I'd keep him. Really hope Eller would take off offensively next year though.
It's not really a third line when what was your first line is playing like garbage.

I'm pretty sure he'd be sticking in the top 2 lines on any team that values offensive explosion over carrying the puck past the blueline and lobbing a soft one on net.
