I don't think it's happening, but I think you can make the simple argument that Sather is desperate now but wasn't in the summer. He thought he'd addressed scoring woes and improved the team with his signings and trades. Now he's on the outside of the playoff picture looking in, and his "fixes" have been anything but.
It certainly wouldn't be the first time a GM traded a previously held-back player simply because that GM was under the gun.
Personally I'd be quite unhappy if Callahan went for Jokinen, but it would certainly make things interesting around here. The spin put on such a move by Sather's few supporters would be fascinating indeed.
