Shall I go on?
#1 - Flames were looking to shed payroll with Cnd dollar struggling and Flames on decline

#2 - Comparing a Baseball trade deadline deal to NHL is not viable... Prospects are traded every July for vets going to teams in postseason races

Tigers needed pitching help that year and Alexander was great down stretch (Blew up in playoffs)

#3 - Milbury is an idiot and Wang is a fool

Also John Smoltz was not regarded as a top prospect (22nd round pick)

The Tigers had his potential as a bottom rotation guy ,, So again not comparable to what you are talking about
