I'd rather spend less assets and get Nash than give up major, major assets for Ryan. On Nash the costs are controlled by the combination of his contract and his NMC. Anaheim can send Ryan wherever the **** they want. He's gonna be way more expensive.

It's true Ryan has a much better contract, but in all likelihood we're not keeping Gaborik when his contract runs out at age 32. Between that and the new CBA, we should have plenty of space to keep Henrik, Cally, McDonagh, etc. Our main concern should be in making a deal for Nash while giving up as little as possible. Howson's backed into a corner.
