Then the trade happens, and suddenly it's "highway robbery". In draft pick value, Anisimov and Dubinsky alone are probably worth late-1st rounders each, and Erixon closer to the middle of the round.
I don't think you understand, Howson has repeatedly told the media that he will not move Nash unless it was a trade that gave him the most value possible, and from what I know, sources have indicated that he asked for Logan Couture, Jeff Skinner, Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier. On top of that, Howson rejected essentially the same package from New York at the trade deadline, therefore giving the idea that Howson wants the moon for Nash.
Now all of a sudden, he lets go of his tight reins and take Dubinsky, Anisimov, Erixon and (potentially late) 1st rounder for his superstar? With all due respect to NYR's assets, they simply don't compare to the likes of Couture, Skinner, Schenn and Couturier from the potential standpoint...
So now you understand why Howson has no credibility, and ultimately no respect from the hockey community after he shows up with a trade like this.
