If/when Subban comes back, and if the Habs D is still healthy at that time, maybe an option to make an early deal opens up. But not now. Further along the season, towards the trade deadline, say, if the Habs are sellers, then it's a different story. But we're not there yet. I don't think management will just assume now that that's where the team is headed. (Even if it is rather likely).
Habs still have St-Denis though too. They could easily move one guy.
