Soft deals are along the lines of late round picks, add a depth player or prospect that one GM sees a need for and the other can afford to part with and maybe some conditional stuff after. Soft deals don't include even 1 first round pick.
Didn't intend to present a redundant perspective on this just contributing to the talk
A soft deal for Crosby still includes a handful of wonderful pieces in return. All Mackenzie was saying is that because of Luongo's contract and age he won't fetch the usual return of an elite #1 goaltender-But what is that anyways?
There is a miniscule amount of Canucks fans that believe Luongo will return multiple 1st rounders or top end prospects. Most reasonable fans understand his value is hampered; but we also understand Gillis won't throw away Luongo for tweeners and C-level prospects. Which by the way, has been just as common an occurance in this thread.
