In the Winter Classic thread, there was a mention of this NHL.com article. I copied my response for here:
During Hextall's rookie season, when Bob Froese requested to be traded because he lost his starter's job, a rumor circulated with the Flyers getting Raymond Bourque and the number one pick Vancouver sent to Boston (in the Neely trade) for Tim Kerr and Froese. Supposedly, Harry Sinden didn't want to part with the pick which he used to draft Glen Wesley and probably it was nothing more than a rumor. Another had that pick and Kenny Linseman going from Boston to the Caps for Bobby Carpenter but again, the pick wasn't going to be dealt. Carpenter was traded to the Rangers about a month or so later.
