And made the best decision moving forward for the future of the team even if it means losing nash at a "discount rate"
There's meeting criteria and then there's asking for the moon, and your first sentence was exactly my point...why would Howson ask for the moon if he already had limited options? Hell, it could've gotten to the point where the market has 0 need for Nash (NY could've moved onto Bobby Ryan? etc.). And based on what he was asking for, no he didn't get what he wanted...Dubi, Anisimov, Erixon and a late 1st does not match up to Skinner, Schenn-Couturier, Couture and Ottawa's package.
