This isn't NHL 11, trades involving franchise players don't work out.

So the cool thing to do now is to diss all proposals and claim it's not NHL (insert current year)???

I still don't see why it wouldn't work, and just because Devils fans would want Kesler/Edler doesn't mean the Devils are going to get those types of players for Parise. This isn't NHL 11, trades of that magnitude just don't happen anymore.

Realistically, and based on past trades of similar players, the formula seems to be superstar player traded for a package of players. Very very very seldom do you see a superstar players swapped for another superstar player.
