This is a far better idea for Nashville than paying these outrageous contracts for players that can go on holidays like Gomez has for life.The owners when they sign these contracts should be entitled to some form of compensation when players don't even produce at a level comparable to rookies when healthy "superstars".I'm not jealous of the money he makes but it sure wouldn't fly in the private sector where you earn your money and are paid for production with bonuses.
The picks could be part of a "gentleman's agreement"whereby the party "Columbus in the Nash trade" will pick by proxy and Nashville could recieve a minor league player each year as compensation,hardly similar to the circumvention of the rules that NJ Devils,Minnesota Wild and Philadelphia lawyers have used.Particularly when the Pronger deal is added to the Weber offer sheet.
