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.
You trade for #1 because no one can trade in front of you. From everything I heard, DM did have Nash as the #1 player/top priority for the team that year. They went and got him and got criticised for it.
