ANd everyone says Nash will "be unreal" with a real centre. This rarely proves true when you see a sniper go from one team to another. Production stays about the same. Anyone who thinks Nash will suddenly score 50 goals or 100 points because he's in LA versus Columbus is in all likelihood mistaken.

As far as real life goes, the most recent case of a goalie who is young, former first round pick with limited game time being dealt was Verlamnov, and he fetched a 1st and a 2nd from a team that just finished drafting second overall. If anything, goalies on thsi board are undervalued and deemed a dime a dozen type player.
