    will this trade be vetoed???

    If it were me, and I thought the other guy really wanted Stamkos...

    Why not offer Savard, Stamkos and Osgood for Malkin and Lundqvist?

    If the guy sent you the offer, you can be sure that he is either in need of assists (Savard) or looking far into the future (Stamkos). If I were in his shoes, it'd have to be the assists and a needs-based-trade. I wouldn't trade an absolute sure bet in Malkin for Savard and Stamkos unless I needed the assists. So, point of saying that is you can know that the other guy is looking for one of two things. He's already sent you the offer of Malkin for Stamkos and Savard, so you know he agrees to that. Why not just take it a little farther? Worst case, he says no. Then you could ask if he'd take Leclaire instead of Osgood. Honestly, I'm not sure I'd trade Leclaire for Lundqvist though (I know a lot of folks would disagree with me on that one). But anyway, if he doesn't like that second option, you can still go back to the original deal and make a final decision.
