I saw that, And I'm discrediting anyone.

I'm just saying a deal like that isn't possible in the NHL cause I would imagine that the NHL players comparable to the Jays/Marlins deal would probably be worth about 15-25 million dollars worth of a cap coming going one way, And if prospects are only going back the other way it won't work.

That's why I think Phaneuf deal when you take the financial restrictions and rules into consideration is a very impressive trade in comparison.
