Yeah, Kolzig has a big contract and he isn't playing well. But the same conditions exist for O'neill and many other players around the league. I don't see anyone putting up Hackett for O'neil trade offers. IMO, the Jagr trade allows the caps to make hockey deals instead of having a fire sale, and THAT was the big attraction for GMGM, Anson Carter coming back was just a bonus.
Hackett for Kolzig is a lateral trade? Kolzig can at least stand on his own two feet and can focus on the puck. Hackett has a bad case of vertigo and from what they said on tv last night might well be finished for at least the season.
