Dubinsky + Thomas + McIlrath + 2013 1st + 2012 3rd
Suggesting that we could trick a team out of their lottery pick isn't being unrealistic as much as it's living in a complete fantasy world. You know what else is unrealistic? Trying to get a lottery pick by not including A) our best prospect and B) this years first as well

And you just said this would be a deadline deal. varlomov was traded before the season started, so that doesn't work as an example. On top of the fact that that team just won 5 in a row.

Sorry to burst your bubble but that is just reality.
