Uhh, I don't think he has much of a say...his NTC doesn't come into effect for a while, no (if he even has one)? Also I agree adding Couturier to that sounds ridiculous, but again, I think this trade (if it went down in any form) would have to be a wait see. If Nash comes here and really gels with Giroux and they dominate, I can stomach losing Couturier in the deal. But if he comes here and plays to his recent seasons (which I personally don't expect) it would be just horrible for this franchise. High risk, high reward. If Nash is the player this organization apparently thinks he is, you get a dominant scorer to play on a line with a dominant set-up guy. If he isn't, you get another albatross of a contract while saying goodbye to a guy who appears to be a future Selke contender (plus JVR, etc). Ugh, I hate this time of year.
