Ottawa wants Off-D, plus top 6 forward

Ottawa offers and gain around 4M:
Leclaire: 3.800M (ends in 10/11 season)
Campoli or Picard or Lee: between 0.633m and 0.850M (Lee has a .45M bonus - not much to happen here) all 3 have to be resigned next summer
Total: around 4.6M,

Ottawa eventually dump/trade Cheechoo & Kelly about 5M to be replaced with Chicago's forward prospect

Chicago trades and save around 4M:
Huet: 5.625M (end in 11/12)
Barker: 3.08M (end in 11/12)
Forward prospect? INSERT NAME HERE
Total: around 8.7M
Highlighted at things that are appalling in this trade. Absolute "no" to trading for Leclaire. Certainly "no" to trading Leclaire for Huet (not to say Huet isn't a strong goaltender but his contract is costly and Ottawa doesn't need another excessively extravagant contract to add onto the existing ones of Kelly, Cheechoo, and arguably Neil). In addition, another "no" to adding a draft pick for Chicago's enjoyment! Finally, a definite and shrill "no" to taking back 8.7$ million from Chicago! Are we putting Huet or Barker in the minors? Because both cannot afford to be on the roster.
