I've gotta say, I'd trade Del Zotto for Nash a lot more readily than Erixon. Erixon's way smarter and has a better natural defensive game. I wouldn't be surprised if he turned out to be the better powerplay quarterback either. Plus, dealing Del Zotto might let us keep JT Miller out of a potential Nash trade. I'd rather give up Del Zotto, Dubinsky, and a 1st than Erixon, Miller, Dubinsky, and a 1st.
That right side got to the conference final.

Unless you see other options that are reasonably priced to fill the right side.

How many right-handed defensemen are available that are worth what they'll get?

Slats can spend 6 months fetching after Nash but can't spend a day talking to Stralman to see if he can convince him and his family to stick around?

Stralman has an opportunity to play top four minutes on a good NHL team.

He was fine, no reason he can't be fine again.
