Oh I couldn't agree more.

ALthough it's not that the Habs don't have anything to give up to acquire a player like that, but that they need to keep the players worth giving up in trades like that.

Really hoping for a couple of 1 year deals this offseason, and then reassess things next Summer, see where the young guys progressed, see how the older guys rebounded (or didn't) and look into making some UFA long term signings/trades then.
