Well you have to try to get a sucker. Anaheim probably has a problem with the offers received and decided to float out an exorbitant list of demands. Someone may hit on a few of them, but not all of them, and they'll pull the trigger.

The best we could do that they'd probably accept, is if we had a signed tweener center proven as a point producer (but we don't have one), and Johnson. They're able to watch our team every night if they so choose, they've seen all Jack's mistakes, so if they think he was really worth it they'd probably have gone hat in hand to the Kings in the first place. Murray and Lombardi could negotiate in person which makes things easier.

We don't have a shot at pulling off a deal for Ryan. There are teams that can put together a lot better packages because they don't worry about what they're going to lose like Lombardi does, and GM's under pressure just like Murray who will put them together in a pinch. Then there's the Holmgren types who make big deals for fun.
