I think you're on crack. No way VAN moves that for those guys.

While I think that both Pronger & Niedermeyer have very significant value - it's not anywhere close to what you've included above.

Pronger only has 1.2 years left on his contract compared to 3 when he was traded last time, and he isn't quite as dominant as he was. Both of those things would reduce his trade value. I think that he's still worth a bunch - but it isn't close to what ANA gave up for him 2 years ago.

Niedermeyer is great - but he's a UFA rental. I can't ever remember a blue-chip prospect (Hodgson) or significant roster player (Edler, Bieksa) being included for a UFA rental.

Just my $.02.
