Perhaps, but the only way you're going to get a guy to really build this franchise around is by tanking and picking #1 or #2. Or giving up the entire prospect pool with the hope of moving up to those two spots. Cripes. Even Nash isn't worth building a franchise around.

Not surprised. Koivu cashed in on his one good year.
So he intended to spend this year out hurt? If he was taking it easy, you'd think he'd be avoiding the injuries, no? Not saying the guy is an angel by any means, but what are you suppose to do when your shoulder gets #@$!ed up? If he waits till it's healthy, people gripe about how he's taking too long. If he rushes back, he gets re-injured and people gripe about how he's out again. It's a damned if you, damned if you don't situation. Yeah, he was hurt last year too, but he got hurt by blocking a shot. That silly guy. What was he thinking?
