Everything I have read leads me to believe MacLean was falling head over heels for Rick Nash and rated him the top priority that year. It might be just talk, but it really seems like he was the #1 guy for the BJs.
He might have been. There is no argument from me that DM fell head over heels for Nash, But that doesnt change the fact that we had no shot at J-Bo. That was my point. Even had we wanted J-bo, we agreed not to take him. That was the condition of the trade.

And it worked out well for us to trade w/ Florida. Maybe Atl was asking too much, and the deal with Florida ended up costing us nothing, and actually cost Florida a few draft picks...
