to put a little perspective on things Hossa was traded to pitts. for a former first round highend prospect(angelo esposito), a 1st rounder (ended up being second to last but point is everyone knew itd be late round) and two younger serviceable but not overwhelming on the potential aspect (christenson and armstrong)

pit didnt give a former #2 overall or a lottery pick or even their top prospect at the time. AND hossa was younger... it ended up being a lopsided trade after a couple years. but thats the kind of return that should be expected. a 1st (bostons not torontos) colborne (top prospect) and young serviceable pieces (although cap makes that kind of thing shift a little.


boston 1st

(expiring contract is more valuable than a savard or ference who is signed for multiple years, allows big splash in FA)
min 2nd (becuase they take on ryder not another young player, will be a higher 2nd)

im not saying id do it as a flames fan or that it is appealing on the surface but its way more realistic...but again i dont think he's leaving calgary
