Are you forgetting about the Jyri Niemi blockbuster?

Speaking of, I was recently looking at the vetoed Zigmund Palffy trade:

Quote:
The hockey part of the deal has been completed. Both teams' general managers, Mike Milbury of the Islanders and Neil Smith of the Rangers, have reached an agreement on the players who will be swapped -- Palffy and defenseman Rich Pilon to the Rangers in exchange for forwards Niklas Sundstrom and Todd Harvey, plus a first-round pick, a minor leaguer and $2.5 million.
Why was that deal vetoed? Looks like largely a hockey deal to me. Much more so than the Kovalev trade.
