True, but at the same time they are probably going to be rebuidling and will want to get players that can step into the line up quickly next year like De Costa, Lehner and Silferberg and Butler can do.

We traded Yashin for basically a completely unproven package and that one turned out pretty good. The Havlat trade did not, so of course it's a gamble.

If they want NHL talent back that's equivalent they should just keep Nash because they won't get a player as good in the deal.
