Gordie Clark said Columbus wants us to look like Columbus in order to get Nash
Forgot it wasn't LB it was Arthur Staple suggesting that.
I agree its not worth all that you mentioned above, but if one thing has been shown with regard to a big name talent getting moved is they never, ever get moved for the "high end" packages this board seems to reflect. Look at Heatley, Kovalchuk, Hossa, Havlat, Bertuzzi when he was a big time player, Carter, Neal, Kessel..I'm not saying some of these guys didn't get solid value, but when looking back through this forum and seeing what the "proper" package was vs what the team received is quite different in many cases.
Package price aside Nash by far is more suitable to the needs of this Rangers team.
