This is ridiculous. A guy like Naslund came here to be on a contender. While I think there are better teams out there, our defense and goaltending should make us at least a playoff team. Why would you trade naslund anyway, unless things go terribly wrong and we're completely out? In which case, Naslund would probably agree to a trade anyway. We've proven this year, that we're not going to unload "rentals" when we have a shot ourselves. We could have gotten alot for Shanny, Straka, Jagr, Malik, etc at the deadline, but we kept them for our own chances. So Naslund will probably be with us for the full two years regardless. As far as Redden for Kovalchuk, I almost fell out of my chair. Only in the mind of larry Brooks could you come up with a scenario where a guy who was an UFA is getting traded for one of the 3 best goal scorers in the game. If Waddell even answered the phone to hear that offer, he should be fired.
