Laurie openly saying that he had to be off of the books made trading him mandatory. Once that is the case your return is going to be shit about 99 times out of 98. Anaheim probably could have kept Pronger even with the caphit. Because of that Philly had to give up more to entice them into a trade. The situations are not compareable.
That's stupid. A good GM pits one offer against the other like an auction. Kinda like what the Ducks did. shoulda been like, "OK Leafs and Rangers. Edmonton is offering Brewer and 3 minor league D. Can you beat it? I mean, regardless of Lar's situation, the commodity was still Pronger and he still had value around the league.
