JR
Gagné
Amonte
Leclair
Williams
Recchi

And making proposals like you're making is absoulutely ridiculous

Primeau
Williams
Pitkanen

Let's get serious, Pitkanen alone is way too much for Comrie, Williams is having an amazing season and arguably is our best forward out there this year, and Primeau will not have his salary paid for by us, to send to Edmonton while we have to pay Comrie's 4 million as well?? You Edmonton fans make me laugh, Mike Comrie is good, but he's not Kovalchuk. Asking for 4 million???? What a joke. This is the exact reasoning why we won't make this trade. We're happy with what we've got, and don't need to pay some greedy schmuk 4 million dollars for 30 goals and give up top potential already established in Philly. Trade him to the Rangers who don't know better.
two things.

1. Leclair won't be healthy enough to score 30. Amonte isn't the player he was and won't score like he did in Chicago. Williams ready to score 30? ha. Maybe in a couple years. Sure there are guys that can/have but the list that has a good chance is MUCH shorter.

2.We weren't offering Comrie for all three of Primeau, Williams, and Pitkanen, we mentioned Salo and Brewer in a trade.

Comrie's value>Primeau's
Brewer's value>Williams
Salo's value<Pitkanen

that's not a bad offer. It's HIGHLY unlikely to happen, we know, but it's not like its some rediculous Tucker for a top two Dman that you hear from Leafs fans.
