The fact remains that it was *insanity* that one of the NHL's best goalies, dead in the prime of his career, was only able to garner a #6-7 defender in his mid-30s.
Presumably, if any team had been willing to offer a #1 pick or any sort of decent roster player, NYR would have jumped at it. Because they basically ended up taking next-to-nothing.
We saw a repeat of the same scenario with New Jersey having both Brodeur and Mike Dunham. The difference was that Brodeur was solidly entrenched as the starter and wasn't going to be overtaken, but the asking price for Dunham was said to be fairly high. New Jersey went to great lengths to keep him from becoming a Group VI free agent, only to lose him for nothing to Nashville.
