LOL. I only say it so much because it makes sense. Somewhat, at least.

Either way, as I'm sure you know I'd rather trade Nelson than Nielsen. Nielsen is in the prime of his career on a team with very few veterans, is our best defensive forward, our best PKer, has a very reasonable cap hit and is signed all the way through the 2015/16 season. Not to mention he's the best shootout performer in the league.

Nelson's a great prospect, but with Strome in the system he should absolutely be trade bait. You could move him to wing, but with Moulson, Okposo, Bailey and soon-to-be Nino in the top-6 I see him having more value to us in a trade than I do in him playing 3rd line LW.

Just say no to trading Frans.
