Hickey for MPS?
I'd do that in a heartbeat, and I'm a big Hickey supporter/defender. MPS is going to be a very solid two-way player.

So we started playing in 1947? I didn't know that. We're the forgotten sister of the original six.

Outside of the taxes, the list you gave can actually be a positive for some players. The chance to get ut of the spotlight and just blend into the background is a positive for some. I think the main reason we haven't landed a big name guy is DL's unwillingness to take a chance (though I don't blame him on most of those).

Sorry I have to pass on Nash. Too hefty for my taste.

That is a huge package for Nash. Dubinsky, Krieder and a 1st is very good value. I'm unsure if they are saying Stepan/Hagelin has to be added to that package or not.

Dub, 1st and Kreider would be like us offering Brown, Toffoli and a 1st for Nash, and then maybe having to add another good prospect (Voynov?) on top of that.

No thank you.

Ryan or Perry - Pipe dream I know.
I was suggesting Boyes for Stoll, but now Stoll's hurt. And there's no way Calgary would be asking for less for Iggy than what Columbus wants for Nash.
