You say that sarcastically,

But if you compare us to the other bottom-dwellers like Toronto and Columbus, we have the best packages to offer cup contenders for their blue chip prospects.

We can offer Plekanec, Cole, Markov, Gionta, Bourque, Kaberle; I think that's better than what Toronto, Long Island, or Columbus can offer. Calgary will likely be selling off the Iginla rental at the deadline and that will be the prize this year, but we have the pieces to clean up what's left I think.

Of course, if Tyutin and Phaneuf get dangled at the deadline, that will distort the trade market, but I don't expect that to happen.

Obviously, there's only so much demand in the trade market in any given year. If we can get one additional first rounder, I'll be satisfied.
