The last time the isles traded top prospects+ a 1st for a soon to be ufa, was 2007.
The Ryan Symth trade was rumored to have come together quickly, just hrs before the trade deadline, although the gms had briefly talked at the winter meetings.

Snow told the NY press he wasn't worried about signing Smyth to an extension(foolish). Snow seemed to think that just putting a big check in front of Smyth would do the trick.
So, it was more recent than I had thought.

Thank you for correcting me.
