It was more of just being frustrated that many Canuck fans refused to acknowledge that guys like bjugstad/gudbranson/Versteeg were off the board. Coming up with an agreeable trade between 2 fan bases is pretty much impossible. But we should at least have enough respect for each other to listen to what each side knows about a potential deal on our own ends. That way both sides are more informed about what is going on, and we avoid the unnecessary flame wars

While it may take away the fun of speculating how your team will look with awesome prospect/player X, it leads to hundreds of wasted pages talking about a trade that one side already knows has absolutely no chance of happening.
