Andrei Markov

Johan Franzen (assuming his injury isn't long-term).
1st round draft pick
Miscellaneous salary/roster dump to balance the accounts, e.g. Danny Cleary

In this trade, cap space is approximately conserved, with Montreal gaining short-term and Detroit gaining long-term. Montreal improves at forward, and Detroit improves on defense.

alternatively:

To Detroit
Tomas Kaberle
Yannick Weber
To Montreal
2nd round draft pick 2013
3rd round draft pick 2014

Helps both teams, potentially.
Why would we trade Cole and Markov? I'm sure trading those two is the furthest thing from MB's mind.
