EJ trade, Phaneuf trade, Thornton trade (one of the most shocking)
In a sense the Pronger trade out of Edmonton was shocking as well just because there were rumors of possible scenarios like Nabokov and Michalek from SJ, the Oilers asked for Kopitar in LA and Richards or Carter in Philly. Dont have links to these, just remember reading about it and the San Jose one was mentioned on Sportsnet back then.
Also we asked for Toews from Chicago and Jay Bo from Florida.
