Realistic.

I still hold that you will rarely see 1st's traded unless that team is at the top of the standings and has about a 99% chance of making the playoffs.

With 17-30 all having a chance at 1st overall...the value of a 1st went up dramatically. With that, you'll see higher profile deals go down that involve firsts.

For example: Christensen, Armstong, Esposito, and a 1st for Hossa and Dupuis would more likely be Christensen, Army, Espo, and a 2nd or 3rd for Hossa and Dupuis. Or a 2nd coming back from Atlanta or something.

2 1sts for an aging upcoming UFA? When has a deal like that EVER gone down? On par with the Despres + 2 1sts for Hemsky at the deadline when he was a upcoming UFA.

Come on guys...the Thorton trade...the Hossa trade...the Heatley trade...the Nash trade...have they taught you NOTHING!!??
