Future considerations

Sometimes players are traded for future considerations. I guess it can mean a lot of different things but Im wondering if there have been any wellknown succesfully trades using this method instead of a real playertrade.

IIRC, the Preds got Kimmo Timonen and Jan Vopat for "future considerations" from the Kings. The FC turned out to be an eighth round pick.

Not a bad deal, I don't think

Winnipeg traded Draper to Detroit for futures that turned out to be a dollar. I'm not sure if it was Canadian or American.

He's a Nashville fan, of course it was a good deal in his view.

New York Rangers traded Louie DeBrusk, Bernie Nicholls and Steven Rice to the Edmonton Oilers for Mark Messier and future considerations (Jeff Beukeboum for David Shaw, November 12, 1991).

Future considerations used to be used to cheat- one time a vancouver - hartford deal at the deadline really "included" Jim Sandlak to the golf course bound Whale. But it was called future considerations so that Vancouver could use him for the playoffs that spring, then after their elimination the deal was finished. The league did something to prevent / discourage that type of circumvention of the intent of the rules.

Holy ****! I knew about this but wow, $1 for a guy who scored 24 goals and won the Selke in the same year!

There was a very good article a year or two ago somewhere on ESPN.com that tried to explain exactly what "future considerations" was. It was pretty interesting.

Its not like he was given away. He was a key component. It was either Regehr or Skoula.

The best FC considerations are still

1--A bus tossed in
2--A bag of pucks and food(european trade)
3--1 dollor
4--Tix to the Superbowl
5--Team A trades player 1 to team B--so that Team B would not trade player 2 to team c for player 3---forcing(somewhat) team C to trade player 3 to team A for player 4(this is a Sather special)

Not NHL based, but back when I played Tier II Junior in the MJAHL, a player was traded from Moncton to Halifax for pizza... The agreement was that the player would be traded to Halifax and then the next time Moncton played in Halifax, the Halifax team would pay for Moncton's pizza for the bus trip home.... :lol

Strangest future considerations trade I've seen involved John Tucker of the Buffalo Sabres. In January of 1990, Tucker was traded to the Caps for "future considerations". In July of 1990, Tucker was then traded from the Caps back to the Sabres for "past considerations". So, in essence, he was traded for himself.

I never suggested he was given away. I was just stating that at the time of the trade their was a future considerations portion, and it was Robyn Regehr.
