Would you be upset with a salary dump?

What if CP got rid of Recchi and Leclair for nothing, say a couple of picks. Would you be upset? I wouldn't. Spending money obviously doesn't guarantee success, while building through the draft does.

The trades you propose would be steals for the Pens.

Recchi should bring a decent (number 2) pick, LeClair and 5 or 6. I would try to get a good young player for each, but failing that, would take this level of picks. If I couldn't get that, I would still trade LeClair for anything, but would be inclined to keep Recchi.

The better question is would you give up a higher pick, say a 2 or 3rd rounder plus Gonchar just to dump his salary and get a bag of pucks back. I say yes, but I don't know if any other team would take it.
