Dollars aside, there's no question we would really need to sweeten the pot to pry Vinny loose for Comrie. What that might be, I don't know. But I do know that the quantity for quality ideas floating around these boards are not going to do it. The Comrie + Hemsky idea is the only one I have seen that I'd be remotely interested in if I were TB. But as good as Vinny is, I wouldn't make that offer if I were Lowe.
T-Bay: Vinny Lecavalier + Pavel Kubina
Edmonton: Mike Comrie + Jason Smith + Eric Brewer
Edmonton: Shawn Horcoff + Brad Isbister (Rita, Laraque, picks also avail)
PHO: Paul Mara/Ossi Vaananen
Buffalo: Dmitri Kalinin
Many other possibilities here, just too lazy to look em up tonight.
Decent offers? Or much too insane?
Another problem: Tampa is playing well, not exactly the kind of move a team makes when they're doing well.
Getting Vinny is a very narrow possibility.
