Only if he ditched the option by which he can void the contract after this season. As for what it would take, we would probably have to part with Brewer because he is the best bargaining chip we have. Probably something else would have to be thrown in to reward the ducks for taking on some of the contract.

TO be honest, I doubt we'd even have to deal Brewer to land him, even at half his salary. I bet something closer to Stoll and Rita, or similar would be good enough. I could be wrong, and I'm sure many will disagree with me, but the Ducks will not get a big return for Federov IMO.

I would have to agree with you Jamie - if they want to move him they're REALLY going to want to move him because they'll have to eat ALOT of the contract AND not expect a very good return.

I'd be absolutely shocked if some team gave them a 25 year old Dman that is in the Brewer"ish" class of talent.

OK Im doing this from memory but since Lowe took over we appear to have:

- traded Doug Weight
- traded Mike Comrie
- let Todd Marchant go UFA
- traded Rem Murray
- traded Chad Kilger

- added Dopita
- added Oates
- added Reasoner (but waived him)
- added Horcoff
- added Stoll
- added Nedved for 20 games (salary paid)

All of these guys have one thing in common - they're cheap - and you think we are getting Federov? Let's get real.

The only way it might work salary wise is if we send Smith to the Ducks along with some picks/prospects for Federov + some salary paid.

Something like

Smith + 2nd rounder for Fedorov + X dollars paid

It might cost more or it might cost less, I dunno. I'm not an expert in determining exact trade values.

Anaheim would lose some salary depending on how much Smith signs for and Edmonton would gain the room to take on Federov's contract, *barely*. This is an extreme deal, make no mistake about it; it'd take a push of monumental proportions for this to happen. I wouldn't hold my breath.
