Apparently he's been outperformed by Hjalmarsson, thus making Hjalmarsson a no-trade and Seabrook a possibility (to the fans at least). His contract is 5.8mil until 2016-2017. He's big, tough, offensively reliable, 27yrs old. He is one of the best defenceman in the league but, perhaps not this year from the sounds of things. What would it take to get him? Chicago needs a cheap #2 Center, likely a cheap defenceman in return and perhaps bottom 6 wingers. What can be made around the following? Is there interest for Montreal giving up real assets?
Maybe something around...

C Shaw
D Seabrook

for

C Desharnais
D Dias

Chicago can move Bolland to the 3C, Dias is a cheap top 4 d.

Montreal gets a 3C and promotes Eller. Shaw was a Bervegin find IIRC. And Seabrook to big a bigger, stronger Dias.

Gorges-Subban
Markov-Seabrook
Emelin-Tinordi

In a few years

Tinordi-Subban
Beaulieu-Seabrook
Emelin-Gorges
