Larry Wigge is on KFNS in St. Louis right now. He just reported that before Calgary acquired Kiprusoff that they were trying to get Joseph. What killed the deal was Calgary wanted Detroit to pay $5M per year over the next two years. Detroit wouldn't do it.
So... I guess all of this talk about being able to get Joseph for $3M per season is not true.
It depends on what Sutter offered. Joseph @3mil for a mid rounder is a no go. For a quality player however......
From the looks of it Sutter didn't want to trade a roster player so he most likely only offered a pick/prospect and a poor one at that.
