If that were true we'd see star players trading hands with more frequency than we do. Packaging bets together still makes it a gamble.
You're best shot to land a sure thing with this sort of packages is to find someone in one of the three following situations:
1. Find a team with a surplus of assets that's looking to sell what you want, and isn't losing much if none of what you're offering ever pans out.
2. Find a Mike-Milbury-type that's slowly destroying their franchise with their incompetence.
3. Find someone whose back is against the wall to such a degree that they have no other options but to take the risk you're offering them.
Finding one of those is easier said than done. It's more likely that you end up getting a similar risk in return. There aren't 29 Bob Gaineys out there, but if you find one, please pass that info along to Bob Murray.
