Keep in mind that you're just a hockey fan, not a GM.

If I told you that Colby Armstrong, Erik Christensen, Angelo Esposito, and a 1st rounder would net us Hossa, you would have told me the same exact thing.

So yes, there's fair value, but there's also the pressure and animal spirits (to borrow a phrase from Maynard Keynes) that GM feel around the trade deadline which can lead to some crazy transactions.

I do honestly think that Dallas has a burning need for an offensive d-man to fill the shoes left by Zubov. They have a study defense, but they are really lacking that go to PP QB.. which I think Gologiski could fill very nicely.
