This isn't a Smyth situation, where he's on the last year of his deal, and wants to go back to one specific team. A team that wasn't going to be good yet anyway, so who cares if you bring back a guy from the past for a bit.

Brown isn't asking to be dealt. Williams isn't either. Brown can't seem to score outside of southern California this season. His cap hit goes up next year, and he's signed for a while. Who's taking him without giving you their highly paid crap back in return?
Are you saying every NHL trade throughout history has made perfect sense for both sides? GM's covet guys, look at Frattin. Sather has been known to make some head scratching trades and he has guys like Callahan and Girardi supposedly on the block. Garth Snow, plenty of questionable deals. AND the Kings and Dean Lombardi have a nice track record of shipping guys out of town before their cap hit goes up or a NTC kicks in. Brown isn't untouchable, his contract looks like a noose around the neck of the GM right now with the way he is playing and he is now sulking on the ice. This team was kick started by Brown trade rumors and a major trade 2 years ago, maybe it's time to combine the 2?
