I mean when you look at the deal, it's comparible to ITSELF if you take out espo and armstrong, not kidding, the value u barely increases by adding those two guys.

That having been said, a comparible deal would be

1st round pick
Dandeneault
Sergei Kostitsyn
Begin
Martin would laugh at that deal.

The issue is that when the Hossa trade was made, they weren't busts. Armstrong was playing wing on Crosby's line and Esposito was 8 months from his draft day. That's why teams want quantity when dealing for prospects.

You can dream all you want about throwing some crumbs to FLA and getting Bowmeister but the point is there are better offers on the table already from other teams.
