I don't even think it's that much of a test, to be honest. No matter which way you think about it, there is no good argument to be made for trading for Nash (or Carter) based on the cost being prohibitive, their contracts, and other cap-related matters. Granted, Slats has disregarded all common sense and logic plenty of times before to make moronic moves, but even he has to see that the philosophy the team is going with now, particularly following Tortorella's wishes, is working much better than anything Sather tried before.

Those contracts, and the notion of trading away Kreider, makes these negotiations non-starters.
