sure ... if you want to call it screwing the other team then so be it. I call it bang for your buck.. I dont care about Yandle and only used him as an example... To me getting someone like Luongo\Streit\Marleau\Boumeester for non-elite players would fit the WOW factor... kinda like the Brewer+Lynch+Woywitka for Pronger.

I guess we will just wait and see if something actually goes down.
Bang for the buck indeed! It sounds like you offered Paajarvi and Gagner and Maloney turned you down as he should. I think some of the other players you mentioned would be available and obviously would not cost you the big 4. I was only speaking about Yandle who would garner a very hefty return.
