Same thing happened with the Flyers and Pronger.
This is correct. It's a 35+ contract, but I'd still deal Anisimov and picks for him over dealing Dubinsky + prospects + picks for 7.8 mil Nash, if he's at all available, which he probably isn't. I think he also has a partial NTC that he'd have to agree to waive, and not sure he would, even with the Richards/Torts connection and the Rangers being in contention.
Sure, stranger things have happened, but this is a complete long shot. If I was Yzerman, I'd be keeping MSL unless it was extreme overpayment.
