Well, right or wrong, it sounds like neither GM, any of the agents at the biggest agency in the NHL, and possibly anyone in the NHL except for Bill Daily knew that would have had to happen. Or maybe the Avs did know, though I doubt it.

What would that information have realistically done though? We can joke about extreme situations, but it obviously would have came across as collusion and they would have been punished somehow.

So the option would have been to screw Feaster over out of spite, and take a less than stellar return, while helping out Columbus. Would have been awesome to see Feaster get annihilated publicly, but in the end probably not the best result for the Avs.
