But once you start adding extra picks, some prospects and maybe another roster player...that's when people start to get squeamish.
Let's start off with Higgings, Plekanec, O'Byrne + 1st Rnd Pick

What did Hossa garner? Armstrong, Christensen, Esposito + 1st Rnd Pick

Hossa was a rental but LeCavs huge contract kinda counter-balances the rental aspect. Our proposed deal is ALREADY better than the Hossa deal.

If we were to tweak it a bit: Higgins, Plekanec, Subban + 1st Rnd Pick It would be an overwhelming trade but still a good one. You gotta give to get. And we're not giving much that we'll miss. I'd throw in D'Agostini if we can find a way to keep Higgins or Subban.

My point is that we won't have to give up A LOT, but expect Higgins and Pleks to be hotly discussed.
