I just had a thought....not that Montreal and Toronto would trade, but how about 3rd pick+kaberle for 5th pick and Schenn?? As a habs fan I think I would accept this deal and believe a change of scenery would do well for Schenn.

@anon: not a bad idea but I don't see Burke going for that. You have to remember that his job is on the line this season. Bringing back an over-paid Kaberle would probably not help his case!

Burke is going to trade up for the 1st overall, oilers will pick reinhart at #5.
