A deal was also sent to the NHL office that would have seen Kaberle sent to Philly for Jeff Carter and their first round pick..
plus the trades for Kilger, Gill and the other guy(which i forget right now)
Toronto would have had HIggins CArter and 3 first round picks, 3 2nd round picks and 3 third round picks..
plus both guys could have gone back in the off season....
Man I am glad Sundin is a habs fan...cause he sure as hel l didint help the leafs the way he could have..
but man Higgins and our picks for sundin... I wouldnt have been real happy with that
Personally, as a fan, I couldn't see Gainey giving up that much for Sundin -- not at his age and given the fact that he would have been a rental player -- doesn't make much sense to me!
