The whole deal just stinks of Sather helping out Kevin Lowe. I don't doubt the rumors at all that there was a better offer for Nedved from Nashville.

But I was surprised that teams were willing to give us 2nd rounders, some in the BETTER 2005 DRAFT, for our aging, overpaid guys. But seeing what we got for Kovy, I thought the return for Nedved was a little dissapointing.
