It was Alexei Kovalev,Tony Amonte,Doug Weight,John Vanbiesbrouck,three first round picks spaced out over five years and $12 million.If VBK refused to report to Quebec,then the Rangers would have substituted James Patrick.The Rangers were also going to acquire Jacques Cloutier from Quebec

Marcel Aubut played the Rangers and Flyers to increase their offers.He struck a deal with both teams.The key was Aubut allowed the Flyers to speak with Eric Lindros and his dad plus his then agent Rick Curran.Aubut had said he would only allow a team to speak with Lindros if there was a deal in place and the Flyers wanted to make sure Lindros wanted to play for the Flyers before making the deal

The Rangers increased their offer after finding out the Flyers were close to landing Lindros.Aubut and Neil Smith agreed to the deal
