Unlikely rumour on TEAM 1200: Forsberg for Abby, Samsonov and pick

Someone called into TEAM 1200 around 4:30pm today when they were talking about rumours of Forsberg being moved within next 24-48 hours. This caller indicated that he had heard of the following trade proposal:

To MTL: Forsberg

To Phi: Abby, Samsonov and pick

Again, this is only some guy calling into a radio station. Any opinions as to if this would be something the Habs should do. There are various things to consider:

- Trading a UFA (Sammy) that just signed is not good way of attracting future UFAs
- if we trade Abby, who will be our backup
- Forsberg makes 5.75 mill (cap hit @ 75% would be just shy of 4 mill).
- We will have the most injury prone 1-2 punch at Center in the league (Koivue/Forsberg)
