That's a sure thing in exchange for a 6th d-man and whatever is behind door #5.
Or even worse, if the 5th is a bust, you will never live it down.
And let's not forget what the Philly trade for Lindros got:
Peter Forsberg, Ron Hextall, Chris Simon, Mike Ricci, Kerry Huffman, Steve Duchesne, a 1st round selection in 1993, a 1st round selection in 1994, and $15,000,000 cash.
And the Rangers before that offered:
Doug Weight, Tony Amonte, Alexei Kovalev, John Vanbiesbrouck, three first round draft picks (1993, 1994 & 1995) and $12 million.
