Just thought it would be something worth throwing out there.

Except that we're counting on Hornqvist to be a core of this team for a long time. He's only in his 3rd season. He's 24 years old. He's our leading goal scorer and 2nd in points.

Alfredsson is playing in his 15th year and will be near retirement (maybe retired) when Hornqvist is approaching his prime. He's 38 years old.

This does not help Nashville at all. Patric is helping us NOW, a 3rd round pick won't help for at least a year or two.
