Is upgrade to 802.11n card possible if I upgrade screen too?

I have a macbook core 2 duo bought in 2008. Its motherboard is fried so I want to use its screen and airport card in my macbook core duo from mid 2006.

According to ifixit I can't make the upgrade, but the reason specified is the three antennae connection. Since the screen holds the antennae I would think that it would no longer be a problem.

Is there a reason I can't make the upgrade as long as I swap screens?
