I don't think the Habs are willing to part with what it'll take to get Phoenix's pick.
Brassard is such a good fit for the Habs it's not funny, but his recent rise up the draft rankings makes it less likely the Habs will get him.
That being said, the best case scenario for the Habs would be for Brassard to fall out of the top ten for whatever reason on draft day, much the same way Parise fell and Lamoriello scrambled to make an unexpected last-minute trade up. He only had to trade up a couple of spots in the teens.
Rather than focusing on Phoenix at 7, on the off chance that Brassard falls, perhaps a trade could be swung with, say L.A. at 11, who might think they can still get the defenceman they want at 16...
