This. People act like a GM has a gun to his head and has to make the deal right then and there. If you don't like the deal, then keep the player until you get a deal you like...or maybe that player gets his **** together and improves his play.

I hate the "Well, that's the best he could have done" as if there was no other option than trading a player for scraps. KEEP HIM then!

Howson didn't get a deal he liked for Nash so he decided to wait until the summer. Compare that to Gauthier who would have made the deal in March and would have gotten back ****.
