Player traded back to original team

Not sure if this belongs here or in the History of Hockey, so I apologize if it's in the wrong place.

Just curious if there has ever been a situation where a player was traded to a team for a playoff run, but then traded BACK to the original team in the off-season? I know there has been several cases where a player goes back via free agency, just curious if a team has ever traded a player back in the off-season after a playoff run.

Geoff Sanderson in 2004. Although he was claimed off waivers by Columbus, not traded back.

I'm not sure if this qualifies

But the one that I remember would be

To Vancouver Canucks : Geoff Sanderson
To Columbus Blue Jackets : 2004 3rd round pick

As a condition of this trade, Vancouver agrees to waive Sanderson in the off-season so Columbus can reacquire him

That's exactly what happened

Not the same situation as the OP described but Dean McAmmond was traded to Colorado at the beginning of the '02-'03 season and traded back to Calgary at the trade deadline:

2002/10/01: Calgary Flames traded Derek Morris, Jeff Shantz and Dean McAmmond to the Colorado Avalanche for Chris Drury and Stephane Yelle.

2003/03/11: Colorado Avalanche traded Dean McAmmond to the Calgary Flames for a 5th round selection (Mark McCutcheon) in 2003.

Brian Savage was traded on the condition that the Coyotes had to take him and his lousy salary back the following season.

Basically gave up Mikael Backlund and Glen Metropolit to get a month of Tkachuk. Ouch. Imagine if they had flubbed the Bogosian pick, making Backlund the most significant asset traded?

Vinnie Prospal was traded from Tampa Bay to Philadelphia then back to the Lightning.

Flyers Trade Rights to Vaclav Prospal to Tampa Bay

The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have traded the rights to forward Vaclav Prospal to the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for Nashville’s seventh round pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft (previously acquired by Tampa Bay) and a conditional pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, according to General Manager Paul Holmgren.

"Vinny really didn’t express much of an interest in coming back and playing for us next season,” said Holmgren in making the announcement. “His heart is elsewhere.”

Prospal, 33, recorded four goals and 10 assists for 14 points and six penalty minutes in 18 regular season games for the Flyers this past season. He added 13 points (3G,10A) and six penalty minutes in 17 playoff games as the Flyers advanced to the 2008 Eastern Conference Finals.

He was re-acquired by the Flyers from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for defenseman Alexandre Picard and a second round pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft on February 25, 2008. Prospal registered 29 goals and 28 assists for 57 points and 39 penalty minutes in 62 games for the Lightning prior to joining the Flyers.

Its not that bad, when you consider the fact, that Tkachuk would be UFA on 1st July .

Detroit luvs to reacquire its former players. Larionov was a good reacquisition, Kyle Quincy wasn't.

WRONG SPORT I know, but my all time favorite case of this was the 1987 Detroit Tigers Traded for Dickie Noles from the Cubs for the stretch drive for a player to be named later. At the end of the season Noles was traded back to the Cubs as the player to be named, essentially traded for himself.
Wings love getting there former players back, Samuelsson, Quincey, Bertuzzi, Ty Conklin all in recent years. Usually hasn't worked out well.
Drifted a lot, sorry, as for the topic of the thread, Tkachuk has to be the biggie.

This is why Don Waddell belongs on a short list of "worst GMs in history".
