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.
Yes, but could Washington or Colorado foreseen Colorado's success? No. As of last season, Colorado was the second worst team in the league and was expected to do poorly this season. The team risked a lottery pick for at the time, a half assed goaltender.

I'd be more than willing to trade Kreider in such a package, but not all GMs think alike and you aren't one of them, so how would you know how any of them think? You have a special power I don't know about?
