At the same time, I feel like JVR would be the perfect guy to use to sweeten the pot for Nashville. It's almost too bad that Holmgren couldn't have waited to make this trade until after his dealings around Weber went down. We know Nashville will want/does want at least one, probably two forwards. I think a deal structured around JVR -- who is good friends with Colin Wilson -- would have been better used here. If the offer sheet/trade around Weber fails, then you trade for Schenn.
