If you were the Habs GM would you deal a package of Souray, Abs and Perezhogin to move up in the first round and draft Eric Johnson? Whether it be with St. Louis, Pittsburgh or Chicago.
Keep in mind dealing these three players opens up an opportunity for a young player like Kostitsyn. Also gives us more cap room to sign a free agent.
Perezhogin's value currently is not high as it could be, so it is not the time to trade him. I wish we could get a D-man prospect like Johnson, but I don't think giving Aebisher + 1st MTL + Souray would be enough... St-Louis doesn't need a guy like Souray... Komisarek or Higgins would be the kind of player they would pick for sure.
