But considering we are not looking to move bodies for our rebuild anymore and we're still trying to get into the playoffs that ups his value about a 1st rounder + B level prospect.

Now since you're within the division, you'd have to go beyond that for us to consider trading a player that may bite us in the ass 8 games/year, so it'd prob take 1st round + A level prospect.

That's my analysis on what Montreal would have to give to trade away basically one of our last 4 veteran players and tank the season.

But really, even if Montreal offered their 1st round pick + Collberg/Beaulieu/Hudon, I'd still be wary of trading such an effective player who's also a leader and great team guy for a pick that's going to likely be in the bottom 3rd of the first round + a prospect that's going to take 2-3 years and may not even pan out.
