When JvR returns that added investment with basically the same production as before, there's definitely some disappointment involved.

Think of the amount of times that people propose trades on HF and how rare it is for those trades to be agreed upon by both fanbases? Many GMs probably offer each other trades every day, that's what Dreger is reporting.

Besides, look at Dreger's job, if you know he's going to broadcast the information you gave him, why would you continue to fill him in? He probably needs to find new sources all the time.
Exactly... for the reasons I listed earlier, there's a very good chance that Burke & Holgren have discussed JvR at length.

Will a deal get done? Who knows? Both teams face similar problems in trying to make a deal that involves JvR.

From Philly's perspective, Dion Phanuef isn't going to be on the table, so you have to question whether they can get a Leaf-calibre defenceman without giving up JvR.

From Toronto's perspective, JvR is going to cost a significant defenceman, and you have to question whether or not it's worth making that move when you've got Kessel, Lupul, MacArthur, Kulemin, Armstrong, Lomdardi and Kadri on the wings.
