Those picks are pretty much worth nothing and if you honestly believed Nitty would HELP you then you'd have no problem with parting with a late rnd pick like that.
If freaking Bryz was actually playing up to his contract then I'd have taken a flyer on Nitty and traded Bob but at this point Bryz just isn't playing too well and bob is actually the better of our two Russian goalies.
Unfortunately NHL GM's do not run the same as HFboards. While everyone on here believes all semi good players on your teams require huge overpayment, in actuality not all GM's are ever interested in one player and they do work together to keep the going rates low. He will be claimed by columbus hands down. If they do not claim him expect edmonton to have significant interest and tampa bay. Doubt there is any possibility he makes it further down the list then these three ive listed.
reality is teams outside of the playoffs are not one goalie away from getting into the post season. Also how many cup contenders are Nitty away from a cup? The guy is a good goalie but not worth expending assets on. Teams outside looking in will wait for a claim and continue rebuilding rather then trading assets away for a middle of the pack tender.
