Fans being frustated with a player, and management being willing to move him are two different issues. And, even if management did want to move him, a deal with a conference rival would still be unlikely.

Finally, all other issues asside, Montreal simply lacks the TRADEABLE assets the Isles would want. Obviously, Habs have lots of young talent, but not a lot of guys you want to move who the Isles would take in exchange for Peca.

On all ends of the equation, there simply isn't much room for a deal.

BTW, even if there are $ reasons to move Peca, that is not likely to be a factor for Scatch, who is seriously underpaid.

Man, do I ever miss Oleg Kvasha. If Oleg was here, everything would be OK.
