Maybe not the only thing, but the chance of it happening creates a tangible wall that must be overcome.

Make no mistake, though - if Garth announces a trade where he ships, say, Donovan, Strome and Petrov off for Nash*, there will be fans who are certain that history has repeated itself, and even those who wouldn't be certain would be worried about the possibility of it.

* This trade is being used as an example only - I am not proposing this trade, nor have I considered whether the payments are the least bit fair - the point is that our unknowns will always be seen in the best possible light, especially considering our previous GM's history of trading such developing assets who blossomed into high-end talent for other franchises.
