From what we can see now, I think it has been blindingly obvious that there are no moves coming for the Habs. It has been all season. (But the trade rumour mill has no basis in reality to begin with, so ignoring the obvious is a hurdle that is quite easily overcome for the mongers).
That said, things change. Time passes. There might only be 4 or 5 "sellers" at the deadline, and I don't see the Habs as likely candidates to really be a top bidder in the "buyer" category. Although as Bob Gainey has amply demonstrated in his tenure thus far, he will be ready and willing to be a "buyer" either at the upper or lower end if the price turns out to be right. There are too many variables at this point to say what price would be right. Key injuries could play a role in that.
But generally speaking, if all proceeds pretty much as it has so far, I'd say bwoar is bang on, we're probably the least likely team in the entire league to make a deal this season.
