Nick Foligno to Montreal

What would it take for the Habs to trade for Nick Foligno?

Foligno isn't in a position to be traded given his current family issues.

Further, the team really notices when he is not in the lineup. Columbus needs more top-6 forwards not less. Because Patches and Gally won't be moved and Deshairnais is a big no, it would have to be Foligno + for Plekanec which would be a no from Montreal.

Not to use this tired old cliche, but he means more to the Jackets then can be ascertained from his stats. The club's performance took a notable dip when he missed a bunch of games due to personal issues. Factor in the "dick move" aspect that would come with uprooting a guy whose newborn daughter just had a major surgery and I'd consider the odds of Foligno being moved fairly close to zero.

Foligno is a secondary-scoring left winger. We need secondary scoring and left wingers. You can probably figure it out from there.

And there's the family considerations, but those have already been adequately explained.

CBJ needs skilled scoring wingers, so even though Foligno wont be traded, you can get an idea from what would need to be offered.

I hadn't heard that, thank you for the heads up.
