I think he might make a difference and not slide into obscurity. That's why I won't freak out if a decent deal is made to bring him here. I'm not a DW hater though and think he's an excellent GM, so I'm probably more inclined to trust his judgement, whatever that ends up being.
We shall agree to disagree on the subject of Nash, but I'll agree with you on DW. He knows he has Howsen where he wants him; I have no doubt that if the Sharks do get Nash, it will be for silly underpayment, like the Heatley deal (Heater at the time was much better than Nash is now, and Milan was coming off another brutal playoffs). I trust DW to improve the team. I just think it would be better to stand pat.

Of course, this is all just speculation because everyone's going home for the long weekend and I'm bored as ****.

If the team can get a team to take Heatley after a poor year and damn near the same large contract with at least one year of a big salary payout, the team can get someone to take Nash.
I'm kind of a Heatley homer, probably not the best idea to make that comparison.

Anyway, I'm sick of talking Nash to death. We'll just wait and see.
