Because then we'll all be watching him be a star on one of those teams and we'll be saying we could of had him. Its ridiculous. Sather has alot and i mean alot of stock so use it! i'd be willing to part with possibly 3 seconds and (i'd only give this up) 24th plus prospects for a guy you know will be a superstar.
i can almost guarantee that sather is trying to get ovechkin and there isn't a person on the planet that wouldn't want him...but that doesn't mean that you give up anything and everything to get him...

but as much as we need a player like ovechkin, we also need depth so you can't afford to give up several prospects and several picks...

and if you think a couple 2nd rounders and the 24th pick is gonna get it done you are wrong...try starting with lundmark, tyutin, 6th & 24th...then after all other 29 teams get done bidding you'll probably have to toss in balej and next years 1st too. getting him will cost a TON
