Because that's not going to happen it's a bit of a fruitless exercise.
A package like what either of the two Philly centers returned would leave me extremely unsatisfied.
Yes, these are the type of deals I mentioned from the start. Along with a Kessel type deal for two 1st rounders from a bottom feeder. That one is a little more risky but if it's a team at or near the bottom - you gotta figure you're getting a top 3 pick at least. Either these or a one for one forward for defenseman.
And If we ended up with either of those packages Philly ended up with, I'm satisfied.
