In the wake of the Parise/Suter decision, some are looking to Rick Nash as a fallback plan. Some are looking too hard.
Now do this: … bring us Nash. And you do it with almost any asset available. If that includes the bangers above, do it. If that means Franzen or Fil, do it. Some would even say, in quiet moments, that might include Zetterberg.
Those people, in their quiet moments? Idiots. I hope I don’t have to explain why.
Scott Howson is an idiot, too, for the same reasons. The worst GM in hockey has become the hockey equivalent of a hostage-holding terrorist. Nothing Howson would accept would be an acceptable package to send his way. Nash isn’t worth it. You don’t negotiate with terrorists, right?
Do you want to be like Scott Howson? Keep suggesting Nash is worth any package including Zetterberg or Howard. If you want to be like, you know, a decent general manager, pass on that “deal” and forget about it. As I trust Ken Holland will do.
