Zubov for Hatcher is up there and is underrated as far as bad trades go.
Best trades have to be Zalapski/Cullen/Daniels for Francis/Ulfie/Jennings, Recchi+others for Tocchet/K. Samuelsson/Wregget, and let's face it, trading for Kunitz and Guerin last season was brilliant, and they didn't have to give up the store to get either one of them.
That was a bad trade no doubt. But Patrick's hand was forced due to money and Jaromir's meltdown. Anyone know what the Rangers offered for Jagr? I think they were the underbidder? And did the Caps sweeten the pot with cash? I know the team was all but bankrupt at that point, so maybe operating capital was of more value than on ice talent?
It's been a while i can't remember exactly?
By the way as for all time great deals I don't think we gave up much for Larry Murphy? that's got to be right up there with the best.
