And you think they would have taken a series of picks and prospects over that? I just don't think so - this is not a team that's rebuilding. With Vinny and Marty, a servicable D and, most importantly, an NHL calibre day-to-day G, they can really make a run, especially since they play in a weak division.

Hell, we can't even agree that picks and prospects are a good thing in our situation, and you think Tampa was going to go all weak in the knees for Methot and Lindstrom, with all of 70 games between them?

Dallas made the equivalent of Paz + Zherdev as their offer. If you're not willing to be in that ballpark, it's a moot issue.
