Just as an separate note, I've tried to stay on my posts within realism.

I have only used the trades that were actually were admittedly close to happen.

Also I've left out the ones that are mentioned only by one source - they are likely made up or remembered incorrectly.

The answer we'll never know - but the two would have been not certain to end up to Nordiques if that trade went through.

"June 24, 1992, Tony Amonte is reportedly upset about being mentioned in trade talks and isnít sure he will report to Quebec if he is traded.

John Vanbiesbrouck is also in a situation where the players union says he can become a UFA while the league says he is an RFA."
