1st: What need do Devils have Aebischer? They have Brodeur.
2nd: Why would Lou help Habs giving us number one center? We should be competing them for the same (about 5-7) spots.
3rd: The trade would send them 3.8 million in salary and more if the prospect was NHL ready. They are on a tight budget for even that. Someone mentioned Ryder ... with all likelyhood hes going to get something between 2-2½ million too.
4th: Team that gets Gomez/Gionta would almost certainly receive either Mogilny or Malakhov aswell. Habs do no have that much cap room - without Gainey getting his hands tied behind his back until some contracts expire.
5th: Waiving Bonk would make Habs look even more desperate than Devils waiving Mogilny/Malakhov - atleast hes cheaper and useful on the PK.
