I'm sure you'll say what they got from New York is better. Thankfully, that will just further prove how ignorant you are.
Well this is what Chuck Pleiness and Ansar Kahn said about it.


That's a pretty steep asking price for any team, including the Wings, who would more than likely have to part with proven talent like Johan Franzen or Valtteri Filppula and perhaps even throw in an up-and-coming star like Darren Helm or Gustav Nyquist.

No counteroffer, no back and forth negotiation, nothing. It is clear Columbus has no intention of trading the face of its franchise to the team it considers to be its top rival, a Detroit club that has dominated the Blue Jackets since they entered the NHL in 2000-01.

The last thing Columbus general manager Scott Howson wants to see is Nash being paired with Pavel Datsyuk and his Blue Jackets having to deal with that scenario six times a season.
They also a pick and rumors they would consider throwing in Ouellet or Sproul maybe but weren't high on that either. Jurco and Pulkkinen (God I wish) also were thought to be high on Columbus' list but Howson just wouldn't trade him in division.

So basically they would consider moving Franzen or Filppula with Helm or Nyquist a first and maybe another prospect. But that prospect would not be named Smith.
