That we could get him with AK and a package of others would be a dream but I don't see it. It'd probably take Andrei, Weber, Kristo and a 2nd, at least. Dooo it!
As for the Rangers cap, well getting rid of Wolski smartly for no salary in return, saves them almost 4M next year, so that will help a lot if they want to land Nash. As for us, I'd throw the kitchen sink at LA to get Brown. They just traded Johnson, so I'd offer them AK and Tinordi. A big price to pay, yes, but we need Brown badly. Also I think we got lucky (or smart) with Dietz and Ellis. I think they have as good a chance of being on out team as Tinordi does. Tinordi could be a monster for us, but Dustin Brown would do for us what Cole is doing, and that would be so crucial on a second scoring line. LA doesn't want a bunch of maybes like Weber and Kristo, they need a potential monster like Tinordi. It's a big risk, but Brown is something we desperately need, and a player that is so hard to find.
