I disagree...I think two of Dubinsky, AA or Hagelin are headed in the deal for Nash. Add in Thomas and a #1, and I think Howson finally caves. That's more than Shero got for Staal which most of the hockey media are starting to wake up and see should be the price for a player like Nash. Both players had a minimized market, and, while Nash is the better goal scorer, he has the higher cap hit and longer contract. Once Parise signs, and Howson sees that Sather isn't going to drop his price, and nobody else is going to give up the "pie-in-the-sky" deal he wants, and that Nash hasn't relented on the list of teams to which he'll accept a deal, the deal gets done. Dreger and Nash heckling Portzline on Twitter brought it home for me.
