It's hysterical that Toronto fans genuinely believe they could trade futures and futures alone for Ovechkin.

Ultra facepalm.
It's called reality. Simply assuming a player is great based on past performances gets you in big trouble. Look at how he is playing now.

I personally would not even want Ovi on my team. He does not currently bring enough to justify that insane $9.5M contract. I would not even trade our first, let alone some blue-chip prospects.

The thing you are right on is that there is a 0.001% chance he gets traded. But I think that has more to do with the fact few if any would want him currently.
