I'd rather trade him then go the arbitration route.

I don't see any scenario where Montreal isn't going to offer him a fair contract based on his worth to the team and if they are that far out on their numbers it's better to move on without him.

There are some stats on what happens when a team takes a player to arbitration and the odds the player is playing for the same team in a few years is very, very slim. The relationship for all intents and purposes, is broken and it's not going to be repaired.
