Given that I think he will be difficult to move, and that I believe MB is satisfied for now with his cap flexibility, I don't think he's going anywhere this season at least.
I would tend to agree and I would not be surprised to see him back next season if he takes enough of a pay cut to entice management. I really don't see someone giving him anywhere near his current salary unless he really gets hot for the remainder of the season and helps lead the Habs deep into the playoffs.
