Also this doesn't help in negotiations, I'm prone to it too. But if I need a top 6 forward I'm offering Keith Yandle because I know people aren't looking for Klesla even though hes a useful guy.
Well, I think it is natural to look to the big move first, particularly when you know you only have one to make at the start (I'm assuming most people will be holding at least one deal in reserve for injury or deadline dealing).

I'm sure Vrbata is on my list. I think I've inquired after just about every RW-SNP in the league.
