I wouldn't let Lokti be the deal breaker in acquiring what I believe, right or wrong, to be a real difference maker. We keep Toffoli, our most important prospect. And Nash replaces Lokti as a forward in the lineup. If you're afraid Nash is going to get hurt or suck here, then I guess we will never acquire anyone of substance.
We simply hold different opinions. You think that it is easy for an organization to replace 3 roster players, including a 21 year old with a ton of potential, for one player in return. I'm playing devil's advocate and suggesting that this is the exact reason why deals fall apart. As someone said earlier, these details are absolutely critical when a GM is weighing his trade options.
