No we couldn't. We do not have expendable, young NHL experienced forwards that Columbus flat out said they required. We don't have a spare number 2 center to get Ryan which they also flat out said they required. And I don't see how Ott or Foligno are relevant since neither is a better top 6 option than what we already have. Ribiero wasn't going to help us.



I agree with this one. Strange situation.
Obviously, the package would have to be set up a bit differently but asset wise, I don't see how we couldn't compete with that package. Again, we are focusing in on one team when I'm just using it as an example. There are other top 6 options out there and value wise, I think we could've matched the Nash deal.

And how wouldn't a guy like Foligno benefit us? A young 24 year old winger with playmaking abilities who is a pain in the ass to play against. He's starting to put it all together and IMO, will be a 50 point winger for most of his career. That would be great for this team to have, especailly considering Method was dealt for him.
