How many teams are willing to do *anything* to win the Cup?

*ZERO*

If there is a team willing to pay any price to strengthen their lineup, please call Ted Leonsis and let him know, so that he can deal Jagr there. That team would probably also like to help the Stars with their Bill Guerin/Pierre Turgeon situation.

You said before that it's sad for the NHL that the Oilers would rather fight contract with Comrie than put their best possible lineup on the ice. Maybe in a sense that's true. But it's a small symptom of a much bigger leaguewide problem. Isn't it also sad that teams are trying to give away some of the world's best hockey players, and can't find anybody willing to take them?
