So I was watching Sportsnet "Hockey Central Hockey Trade Deadline Preview" and they were asking some of the panels about past trades/non trades. One of guys is Doug Maclean. Now this was news to me, not sure if you guys already knew. He said when Zherdev was holding out, Dallas phoned and offered Brenden Morrow for Zherdev. He told the Armstrong, "let me think about it/talk to ownership(as Zherdev was coming off a 25 goal season or something like that/Morrow was also a RFA and was asking for decent amount of money)". Ownership gaved the thumbs up so Maclean phoned back Armstrong and said "lets do the deal". Armstrong reply was, "sorry, trade is off, we just signed Morrow to a new deal". Maclean said he was heart broken when he heard that news. Would Zherdev for Morrow been a better trade then the trade with teh Rangers?
