Not advocating that we trade either unless it's for a top pick or a top offensive talent not named Nash though.
Nash would be so bad here IMO, especially relative to his cap hit. He doesn't fit the mold of this team well, would be forced to be more defensive, and is self proclaimed to be more comfortable playing in a smaller market.
Parise is a much better option. We'd get him for about what Nash's cap hit is without giving up the assets. Parise knows what we're all about and would fit in no problem.
I value Sauer also, but if someone will pay enough on a gamble, I'd let him go too.
Nash = ocrrectimondo, but wuld consider the contract if the cost is dirt cheap.
If Nash is not a chemistry fit here, but still has talent and production, we could still move him and the contract.
Parise - yes but especially because of Richards contract, must keep this to a short deal for more $$ and not a 5/6 year term for 6 or so.
