That wont work with the shipped ssh. You could use netcat

target# nc -l -p 31337 | zfs recv data/path/etc

source# zfs send data/path/etc at snap | nc target 31337

that will do it without encryption.

If you want to use the shipped ssh with the least overhead consider using
arcfour. ssh -c arcfour

Also, if you are going over the WAN I strongly recommend using the HPN ssh.
I have tutorial
how to use it. I routinely get 80 megabits/sec transferring data out of a
east coast availability zones at AWS to san Francisco.

In my view the HPN patches should just be incorporated into not only ssh,
but all network application stacks as a configuration option.
