I just think that fans see one of their player's names in a trade proposal and tend to (at times, wildly) overvalue him. Just trying to provide some perspective. (I remember Yushkevich was thought to be worth between a sole 2nd and a sole 4th last season prior to the trade deadline, and IIRC he went for a 7th and people were shocked he didn't at least bring back a 3rd.)

All of that being said.....the more I look at this the more I think either it's a slow news day, or someone missed half the conversation and made up the other half to cover his tail when questioned later.
IB, I tried to PM you an apology for being a bit confrontational back there and I think I sent it to my least favorite poster instead (who remains nameless here). But, in general, I think a lot of your posts are sensible.

I think it is sad that it has come down to this for a lot of teams. $ have emerged as such a major issue, that the trade situation is very unpredictable.
