Every year, teams make ridiculous demands and get really small offers. We all know about the Lindros trade. We also know Scott Stevens brought 5 #1's and that was a bad deal for Washington. So what is a #1 like Sidney Crosby worth? What would it cost to acquire him? Seems to me a fair beginning point is 3 quality players. 2 quality players does not make up the gap. So lets say you talk Chicago. You ask for Barker, Babchuck and Chicago's 1st? Would you ask for more? That would decimate their defense but provide a great offensive player. Would they consider it? What is the determining factor that would make a deal? If that is too much. just Barker and Babchuck is too little. What approach should be taken?
