Then you have to check Toronto's temperature on Rinne, see if you can pry Gardiner/Rielly + a 1st rounder or two out of them. Try to load up on skilled forwards in the next 2 or 3 drafts. They (Nashville fans) have always seemed to hold guys like Josi, Blum, Ellis and Klein in high regard, so maybe the defense won't be such a long rebuild. Add some skilled forwards through the draft and maybe you have something going forward.
They'd still be better off matching, then trading him in a year after the up front money is paid...that then becomes a super sweet deal for an elite defenseman that Nashville could get a kings ransom in return for.
