It's trade deadline season, which means endless speculation on moves that won't happen. So why not invent your own trade rumors? Let's all discuss fanatical (yet realistic) trade scenarios that would land your dream player.
After the fictional jump, I talk about what made me want to write this fanpost.
This Puck Daddy article discussing Krejci's move from center to wing had an interesting comment on it from user Mike in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Send to draft choices to Minnesota for Dany Heatley. He is not the same as he was in Ottawa but he will be reinvigourated in Boston and trade for Ovechkin in Washington. they need wholesale changes and three draft choices are worth anothe cup in Boston. I was there in 1970, 1971(lost to CHC in seven) and in 1972 and then all those years before last year. Come on Pete make the moves. You may have to give up one of our cherished defenseman to Washington but Ovechkin will go beserk in Boston and so will Heatley. Add those two and another cup is ours.

While I'm sure Mike has seen much more hockey than I have, and possibly ever will, I get the odd feeling that neither Heatley nor Ovechkin are going to don the spoked-B any time soon. However, this doesn't mean we can't be unrealistically bold with our fantasy trades here, so why not discuss these types of trades?
Case(s) in point: what will it take to pry away Shea Weber or Keith Yandle? Could Sidney Crosby switch black and gold allegiances? Why can't we thank Kessel for bringing us a second straight Stanley?
The only thing I ask is that the trades be realistic. So, much like HFBoards delicious trade proposals, make them ridiculously lopsided. Hamill and a 1st for Stamkos!
