And what about if they face Detroit in the playoffs and Datsyuk makes the Wings look silly.
Not trading in your own conference for fear of looking silly is a sign of GMs with no balls.
well I guess than most GMs don't have balls... cause this is something I've noticed GMs talk about ever since I've started following hockey.
to me it makes a lot of sense... it always has...
it's no coincidence that the Canucks haven't pulled off a deal with the Oilers or Flames for more than 10 years! it's not a coincidence that when Bure went on the block the Canucks were basically only listening to 2 eastern teams (Flordia and NYR)... infact I don't think our team has ever made a deal with Minnesota or Colorado either (Northwest Division).
saying a GM doesn't have balls because he thinks like this is stupid!! GMs don't make moves to show the rest of the league they have balls, but to do what is best for their team long term and short term...
If Detroit makes an offer for Iginla, and Philly matches the offer - I'd deal him to Philly in a second...
the whole argument is stupid anyways... Detroit doesn't have the parts to make a deal like this... and what they do have, other teams could match.
