I think a package like that would REALLY tempt a team not owned by Mario (they don't have ANY money to do a deal like that).
You are offering 4 $5s for a $20 bill. Ovechkin is thought of like Lindros. (Mike Ricci, Peter Forsberg,Steve Duchesne, Kerry Huffman, Ron Hextall, Chris Simon, the Flyers' first-round pick in 1993 (Jocelyn
Thibault) and 1994 (Nolan Baumgartner), and $15 Million in cash)

So even if you devalued Ovechkin by 35% WORSE than Lindros....then the chances of the Oilers trading for the kid are still a snowball's chance in hell.
